An uninterrupted representation of the game
This is by far the longest video. It allows you to see a nice, uninterrupted representation of the game: rattling balls, confusion of blind-folded players, a little display of wrestling, crawling in order to gain possession of the ball, missed shots... all are on display except for scoring a goal..
The most decisive moment of the tournament
This 10-second video portraits perhaps the most decisive moment of the tournament. After one of the semi finals ended in a tie, the game was decided in penalty shoot-outs. After the four mandatory penalties (per team), the game moved on to sudden death. We can clearly appreciate how the sound created by the basket, rattled by the lazarillo, was enough to orient the shooter, who scored a clean shot from more than three yards out.
The frequent crawling for possession
This clip shows four recurring things/situations/strategies seen in all 11 games throughout the tournament: the frequent crawling for possession, lots of wrestling over the ball's possession, the clapping of players to communicate his/her teammates their location, and the lazarillas(os) (guide players, not blind-folded) constant instructions to orient his/her teammates.
The best female player of the tournament
In this video we can see Tammy (who was voted the best female player of the tournament) outpowering, literally dragging, and outgaining in possession a rival male player. Tammy is a perfect example of the capabilities shown and confirmed by female players. This was frequently acknowledged by the male players.
Gaining a divided ball
In this short clip we can see Cecilia (known as Cecy) gaining a divided ball, walking with a great sense of orientation, and scoring easily during the championship match. Cecilia went on to become the tournament's top point scorer; nonetheless, she was not voted the best female player of the tournament.
