The following players were selected from their schools to represent Bath & West Wiltshire SFA for the season 2010/2011.
What happened in 2010:
- 2010 Winter Olympics—Held in Vancouver, Canada, the international sporting event included approximately 2,600 athletes representing 82 nations through 86 events in 15 disciplines ranging from Alpine skiing to the Scottish sport of curling. The United States won the most medals in total, and Canada tallied first overall in gold-medal wins.
- Icelandic Volcano—Air traffic throughout Northern and Western Europe was seriously disrupted when a volcano beneath Eyjafjallajökull, an ice cap in Iceland, began erupting, sending a volcanic ash cloud into the atmosphere and grounding airplane travel throughout the region. The eruptions and subsequent disruptions spanned from December 2009 through October 2010 and again from April 2010 through May.
- Chilean Miners—Thirty-three miners working in the San Jose copper-gold mine near Copiapo, Chile became trapped 2,000 feet underground after a cave-in and mining accident that captured global attention. All successfully extracted from the mine 69 days later, an estimated more than 1 billion people across the planet watched their televised rescue.
- Times Square Bomber—A catastrophic terrorist strike in the heart of Times Square was narrowly averted this May when 31-year-old Pakistani immigrant Faisal Shahzad’s explosive-packed 1993 Nissan Pathfinder failed to detonate and a street vendor notified police of smoke pouring from it. An American citizen who received $15,000 and explosives training from the Pakistan Taliban, Shahzad was subsequently plucked off a Dubai-bound airplane at JFK International Airport and was sentenced to life in prison in October, while warning of more attacks in the future.
