Ek' Balam Return To Belize After Third Pok-Ta-Pok Win

Belize's Pok-Ta-Pok team is now the three time champion of the ancient Mayan sport. Ek' Balam was welcomed back from their World Cup tournament in Mexico with a motorcade through the streets of Orange Walk Town on Sunday. It's the third consecutive win for this Yo Creek team and at the ceremony, the assistant manager said that these young men were "guerreros," strong and determined. One of the players told our colleagues at CTV3 that he was proud to represent Belize and encouraged others to join the sport.

The 5th World Cup will be hosted by Belize and the Ek' Balam team hopes to get the support of the residents.
