The Women's Lacrosse World Cup, the recognized world championship of international women's lacrosse, is held every four years. From its inception in 1982, it was sponsored by the governing body for women's lacrosse, the International Federation of Women's Lacrosse Associations, until that body merged in 2008 with the former governing body for men's lacrosse, the International Lacrosse Federation. Starting with the 2009 event, it will be sponsored by the sport's new unified governing body, the Federation of International Lacrosse. The latest World Cup was held from 17-27 June 2009 in the Czech Republic and was won by the United States with a one-goal win over arch-rivals Australia.
Famous quotes containing the words cup, world and/or women:
“I believe that water is the only drink for a wise man: wine is not so noble a liquor; and think of dashing the hopes of a morning with a cup of warm coffee, or of an evening with a dish of tea! Ah, how low I fall when I am tempted by them! Even music may be intoxicating. Such apparently slight causes destroyed Greece and Rome, and will destroy England and America.”
—Henry David Thoreau (18171862)
“Then the world discovers, as my book ends, how to make two lovers of friends.”
—Lorenz Hart (18951943)
“You women could make someone fall in love even with a lie.”
—Georg Büchner (18131837)
