Australian teams made home advantage count as they scooped medals in all nine of the age groups at the Masters Hockey World Cup, Canberra.

The haul included five gold medals, two silver and two bronze, while there were also some fantastic results and performances along the way for a number of Australian non-national teams and athletes, who were also taking part. 


Australia’s Masters emerged top of the pile in the women’s over 40, over 45, and over 50 competitions, and in the men’s over 40 and over 45 events. There were silver medals for Australia’s men’s over 50 and over 55 teams, both of which went down to England in their respective finals, and bronze for the women’s over 55 and over 60 teams. 

Hockey Australia thanks everyone involved in the successful hosting of the event, including Visit Canberra, the organising committee, the participants, officials and volunteers, Hockey ACT, StayOz, Just Hockey, Altius and all of the spectators that attended over the past week.
