German National Paintball team has won the World Games 2009







































German National Paintball team has won the World Games 2009 in Kaohsiung, Taiwan. Paintball is an introductory sports which was shown the first time at the World Games 2009.

Final Ranking:

01. Gemany
02. Australia
03. Iran
04. Japan

Unfortunately the American team was not participating. Rumor had it that the Ironmen or Tampa Bay Damage should have represented the USA. Don't know if this is true. If we are lucky Paintball will now be part of the World Games. The atmosphere was very good, the reception of our sports also.

Let us cross fingers that our sport will now be officially registered for the World Games.

I don't know why they didn't showed up. They were invited. Hopefully they will come next time, if we can go on with Paintball at the World Games...

More pictures from the games on saturday:










































This could be a big step for paintball in terms of publicity and visibility. No matter what country has won the event it is the best advertisement for our sport. The people and the reception was pretty good and the feedback as well. Hopefully it will work out!

I ask in the Ironman teamforum if they were invited or if that was just a rumor...I dont think that they just quit if these nations all fight for a world title in an introduction game for bringing paintball as a real competition to the world games...

The Ironman would never ever quit such a chance...

did they play an x-ball-like format with full matches, or was it more like a regular 7, or 5-man event?

Awesome... it sucks that for whatever reason, we didn't put in a team.

Wondering the same thing. I'm assuming it's 7-man though, in one picture there are 7 players huddled together doing their team chant.

It's great to see this sort of thing happen, however if the USA does put in a team I hope it is a USA team, and not The [insert team name] Team. No disrespect to the Men, Damage, or any other team, it's just I feel it should be more of an "ALL-Star" type team as opposed to an organized team.

Unless the format dictated it be the reigning Champions, hten it should be whoever that is that year.

Just out of curiosity, who all was invited or participated?

It looked like there were more teams than you listed.

Paintball News Rules
  1. No Upping threads. If you have something to say, please do, but don't post in the thread just to take it to the top of the forum.
  2. Do not post "1st post", "1st", "First post" or anything similar (or with any other number) at any point in a thread, even if you post a comment too. It is really annoying and it will result in a ban.
  3. If you don't like something, say why instead of just calling it ugly, lame, gay or any other name. If it is old, simply post a link or report the post with a link to the older News thread.
  4. Please don't post links for places to buy items. That encourages stores, sponsored players and other people to do it and spam the site.
If you have questions, please post them in the Talk to Mods/Admins forum.
