After winning the Rugby World Cup, New Zealand’s All Blacks arrived home to see airport employees performing the traditional Haka war dance.
This is “Where in the World Wednesday,” where we try to bring you something from somewhere else in the world that you probably haven’t seen on another American sports site already. Or maybe you’re more worldly than us and you have seen it already. Congratulations. This week we’ve got an airport war dance.
New Zealand’s national rugby team, the All Blacks, is perhaps best known for the Haka, the traditional Maori war dance the players perform before every game.
When the All Blacks touched down at the airport in Auckland after winning the World Cup last weekend, the employees on the tarmac welcomed them with an impressive rendition of the Haka.
New Zealand beat archrivals Australia in London on Saturday to win its third World Cup, becoming the first team to win three cups and the first to win consecutive tournaments.
