HUNTSVILLE, Ala. (AP) - An Alabama pro hockey player and his brother have claimed the $1 million prize of TV's Amazing Race.

Al.com reports (http://bit.ly/16Klp54) that Huntsville Havoc player Anthony Battaglia and his brother Bates were shown winning the event in a two-hour finale that aired Sunday night.

Good note-taking skills turned out to be a key part of their victory after all the running, swimming and scrambling across the globe.

The finale took competitors from Edinburgh to Belfast to London to Washington, D.C., where they twice had to show a good memory for details of their voyage. At one point, their finishing positions in several past episodes translated into the combination to a briefcase containing a clue. At another, they had to line up countries in the order in which they had visited them.
