Olympic Games Rio 2016
As we all remember, the form book was thrown out of the window in both the men’s and the women’s hockey competitions at Rio 2016. Two unfancied teams ended up standing at the top of the podium for the first time in their respective histories, with Argentina men and Great Britain women taking the gold medals ahead of Belgium and Netherlands respectively. Germany claimed both bronze medals, with the men beating the Netherlands and women getting the better of New Zealand.

Although they missed out in Rio, the Netherlands women were wonderful winners at London 2012, defending the title they won at Beijing 2008 by defeating Luciana Aymar’s Argentina in the gold medal game. The Netherlands men were also finalists that year, but were edged out in the gold medal match by 2008 champions Germany. Australia men and Great Britain women, the hosts, took the bronze medals in what was a superb hockey event at the Riverbank Arena.
