It’s not on television, but it’s a big deal anyway. Last week, in Leipzig, Germany, thousands of competitors from different countries around the world gathered to compete for gold medals in 40 different skilled trades.

Canada won gold in the heating and refrigeration category. (If it’s hockey, curling, heating or refrigeration, we kick ass harder than any other nation on the planet.)

There’s a nice report from Mike Holmes on what went down in Leipzig here, as published in the National Post.
