Group of retirees turn makeshift rink at local park into their hockey haven

SHENYANG, Liaoning province-The thawing ice signals the end of another hockey season for 69-year-old Wang Daming and his friends at their local park in Shenyang.

"This winter is shorter, so we have had less time to play hockey. The only thing we can do is to wait for the next winter," said Wang.

"The youngest one in our team is 56 or 57 years old, and the oldest one is 74. Most of us work or worked as factory workers, and we have others who were professors, policemen and technical engineers."
