|Bodog.com's sponsored foosball player, Carlos Cespedes Martinez has taken home the silver medal at the 2005 World Foosball Championships, along with winning third place in Mixed Doubles with his partner Tommie Bagley.|
The Costa Rican, who came second to Colorado’s Stephen Steighner, competed in the Mixed Doubles, Semi-Pro, Open Doubles and Draw Your Partner, all taking place at the Hyatt Regency DFW near Dallas.
Bodog.com's CEO and Founder, Calvin Ayre says; “We are excited to be backing Carlos. For most of us, foosball is a fun pastime but when you see it played at its highest level – as Carlos plays it – you gain a higher appreciation for the game.”
Thirty-eight year old Carlos, who has five children, has been playing foosball since the age of thirteen and began competing in tournaments ten years ago. In 2003 he won the World Championship of Foosball.
Carlos says; “Foosball is a sport about demonstrating and not talking, and people or friends who watch you play will be in charge of letting the others know your ability.”
