Bulgaria were beaten 82-0 by Slovakia in a women's ice hockey qualifier for the 2010 Winter Olympics.

Bulgaria conceded a goal every 44 seconds in the Latvian town of Liepaja. They trailed 7-0 after five minutes, 19-0 after ten minutes and 31-0 after the 1st period.

In their previous matches, they had lost 30-1 to Croatia and 41-0 to Italy. Bulgaria has a population of 7.4 million but only three indoor ice rinks and 37 registered ice hockey female players.

On par with the England National football team?

Sorry I had to make the joke before anyone else.

I don't think it was funny trying to make out that Slovakia has a worse team than England.

Perhaps, just perhaps there is some strange perverted pride to be had by being the worst in the whole world at something, thankfully for them it is only a sport.
