Yesterday, the final of the 10th FIP World Polo Championship saw Chile defeating USA 12-11 and becoming the World Polo Champion 2015.

The beginning of the match was anything but easy for the host team. USA started to lead the match from the very first chukka (1-0) and they continued to do so up until the half-time, with a result of 5-2. In the fourth chukker, Chile managed to tie the match 6-6 but, during the fifth chukker, USA took the lead once again with a score of 9-7. In the sixth and last chukker, USA maintained its position until the last 30 seconds of the match, when Chile tied the score 11-11. This led to an extra chukker to know the final result. Luckily for the Chilean team, the 16-year old player Mario Silva (+2) led his team to the victory thanks to his golden goal. It was a truly exciting World Championship final!

It is the second time for Chile to win a World Polo Championship. In 2008, the team won its first World title in Mexico.

The third position was for Brazil, which beat England 14-12 during their small final match.

In total, six teams participated in the 10th FIP World Polo Championship held at the Club de Polo y Equitación San Cristóbal in Santiago (Chile). In addition to Chile, USA, Brazil and England, the teams from Argentina and Pakistan also participated at the beginning.
