Road to record: Anna Wijk’s path to becoming the WFC all-time top point scorer

In yesterday’s game against Latvia, Anna Wijk reached a milestone: she scored her 74th WFC point and became all-time WFC top point scorer.

We take a closer look at her 77 points!

Wijk has scored her points in 33 games in total, starting in 2009. With 20+57 in total, it’s clear she’s more a passer than a shooter.

2009: 1+7 points

In Anna Wijk’s WFC debut game in 2009 – she was 18 at that time – Wijk scored one assist in the 17-3 won game against Norway. What followed were 0+4 points against the USA, but zero in the two games after, against the Czech Republic (group stage) and Latvia (quarterfinal).

In the semifinal against arch-rival Finland, Sweden scored ten times and won the game 10-2, with two points for Anna Wijk (1+1). In the last game of the tournament, Wijk won her first gold medal after Switzerland was beaten 2-6. Her personal score in that game was 0+1.

    When executed well, the slapshot is the fastest shot in floorball. Where do the speed and power come from? That’s what I’m gonna dive into today, helped by ice hockey and… physics! Fact: in 2011, the record for the hardest ice hockey shot was broken: Denis Kulyash (Russia) managed to shoot with a speed of […]
