Japan, Kazakhstan, Italy win at Ice Hockey world championship

Budapest, April 20 : Japan, Kazakhstan and Italy defeated their respective opponents at the 2013 IIHF Ice Hockey World Championship Division I Group A here.

Japan beat Britain 4-1, Kazakhstan defeated South Korea 4-2, while Italy beat hosts Hungary 2-1 Friday, reports Xinhua.

Italy accumulated 12 points in four games, and has been promoted to the top division while both Kazakhstan and Hungary remain in the race for the top two spots.
