From frozen ponds and second-hand gear, India women’s hockey team has come a long way to compete in Canada

"

India is not known for its ice hockey players but that hasn't stopped women like 22-year-old Diskit Angmo from forming a team and competing internationally.

Angmo and the rest of India women's national ice hockey team are in Vancouver this week to play an exhibition game against the Surrey Falcons before heading to Calgary.

"It's like a dream come true," Angmo told Stephen Quinn, the host of CBC's The Early Edition.

"We'd never thought that we would come to Canada as ice hockey players."
