Australia Beat Argentina to Win Gold in Hockey World League Final


Australia beat Argentina 2-1 in the final of the Hockey World League Final (HWLF) to win gold at Kalinga Stadium, Bhubaneswar, Odisha. Argentina beat India (who won bronze earlier) in the semifinals.

Blake Govers scored the winner from a penalty corner with just three minutes left in the game. Earlier, Australia scored first through Jeremy Hayward in the 17th minute. Australia thus became champions for the second time in a row and will go down in international hockey history as the last team ever to win Hockey World League Final.
