Mens Hockey Team - Kookaburras (Hockey) - 2004

It took a goal in extra time for the Kookaburra's to land the 2004 Olympic gold medal and break what was becoming a hoodoo for Australian men's hockey. Despite having been a power in the game for decades, Australia's record stood at three silver and three bronze medals in the Olympics until their 2-1 victory over the Netherlands at Athens landed that long awaited gold.

When considering the stature of an athlete or for that matter any person, I set great store in certain qualities which I believe to be essential in addition to skill. They are that the person conducts his of her life with dignity, with integrity, courage, and perhaps most of all, with modesty. These virtues are totally compatible with pride, ambition, and competitiveness.
