Camilo Gaez, 40 years old, is representing Chile in Miami to play ice hockey. Chile's national ice hockey team will participate in the Latam Cup, and according to Camilo, it's the former Pan American Ice Hockey Tournament. The humble Finnish-born Latino player is playing in the leading annual international ice hockey competition for Latin America.


The future of ice hockey is the south says Juan Carlos Otero, the general manager of the University of Miami's ice hockey team, in an interview at NHL.com. The Latam Cup originated in 2014 and it has grown since then, adding more groups and country members each year. Most of the Latin American countries will also be there: Mexico, Puerto Rico, Venezuela, Brazil, Argentina, Colombia, and the Falkland Islands. There are also hockey games for the seniors, ladies, youth 16s, and children 12s divisions.


He was born in Finland by Chilean parents who sought asylum. Since he was a young boy, he has always loved playing ice hockey and remains an enthusiastic winter sports fan. He participated in Red Bull Crash Ice a few years ago and made it to the finals. He has about 1200 supporters, most of them from Latin America. He joined the competition when he was already 36 years old and until today, he is one of the pioneer Latino representatives in the Crash Ice Competition.



This hot blood and chill Latino cannot only skate but also jump and crush some ice. He can also play ice hockey. So why should he not bring the championship to Chile? 


Here's the schedule of Chile:

  • 2 Friday, September 6, 12:00 PM, Chile vs. Venezuela in Panther's Ice Den / Den

  • 18 Saturday, September 7 from 10:30 AM Chile vs. Mexico in Panther's Den / Stadium
