I didn’t know bike polo was a thing, let alone a sport with such a rich history. During a recent trip to San Juan, PR I was introduced to Vladimir and Jan Poul. These guys not only showed me some of the interesting concepts and moves of the sport, but also shared their passion and the sports’ influence on them and their community. Even though Hurricane Patricia was in full scale, bringing us a lot of wind and rain, we decided hang out under the covered b-ball courts so they could officially introduce me to the sport.
I now know a bit more about the sport, have a desire to extend this project and have made a couple of new friends.
Interestingly enough, these guys also introduced me to another bike polo enthusiast from Denver.
