A brilliant performance from the Dutch team ended Team GB’s hopes of a gold medal for the men’s hockey team yesterday. Attention now turns to the bronze medal playoff tomorrow.
The 9-2 scoreline shows just how well the Dutch played and the men from the Netherlands must now be favourites for the gold – especially as the Australians were beaten in their semi-final by Germany.
Everyone at Elms has taken a close interest in the hockey as one of the Team GB players, Iain Mackay (pictured above), is sponsored by Elms Stansted. We share the team’s disappointment at missing out on the final but we hope the players will rally themselves for a tough game tomorrow against the Australians.
