WHAT DOES OCTOPUSH MEAN IN ENGLISH?

octopush

Underwater hockey

Underwater hockey is a globally played limited-contact sport in which two teams compete to manoeuvre a puck across the bottom of a swimming pool into goals. It originated in England in 1954 when the founder of the newly formed Southsea Sub-Aqua Club invented the game as a means of keeping the club's members interested and active over the cold winter months when open-water diving lost its appeal. Underwater hockey was first played as a world championship in Canada in 1980 after a false start brought about by international politics in 1979. CMAS is the world governing body for this sport.
