Quidditch World Cup


As it turned out that the fictional, invented from scratch the game has become very real sport? In Quidditch played in 400 colleges, and recently held its fourth World Cup in this fabulous sport. Quidditch, which is an interesting combination of many elements of rugby, field hockey and running with disabilities, came up with an English writer JK Rowling, to give children and adults to the magical world of Harry Potter. In the real world for the first time began to play Quidditch Middlebury College students. The only thing that distinguishes them from the book’s characters, is that they do not fly on broomsticks. Below is a selection of photos from the 4 th World Cup Quidditch, which was held in New York’s Park in De Witt Clinton, 13 and 14 November.
