Caption: Underwater hockey players standing on the edge of a swimming pool. Underwater hockey is a sport that was developed to improve diving skills. It is played in a swimming pool between teams of six who use fins, mask, and snorkel. A modified version of a hockey stick is used to move a weighted puck around the bottom of the pool and into the other team's goal. Underwater hockey began in 1954, and reached its modern form around 1985. It is played in some 20 countries around the world. These women are representing France at the 11th European Championships, held in Marseilles, France, in May and June 2005. In the women's competition, France won all their games and became European Champions.
