Video "Millemium year world hockey highlights 2000"

The year 2000 will long be remembered for 'the greatest Olympic games ever', according to Juan Antonio Samaranch, President I.O.C. at the closing ceremony in Sydney on 30 September.

The FIH 2000 World Hockey Highlights video captures some of the great moments during the 15 days of non-stop action packed hockey in Sydney, featuring the world's top international players.

The world tour, however, starts in March and April, with highlights from the final stages of the Men's Olympic Qualifier in Osaka, Japan and the Women's Olympic Qualifier in Milton Keynes, England, to determine the remaining places for Sydney.

Then it was onto Holland in May, where the Dutch played host to the world's top six men's and women's teams during the Champions Trophies in Amstelveen. This was a wonderful opportunity to see some of the top internationals in action just before the Sydney Olympics. The hosts not only organised a superb event, but the Dutch teams also took both titles, defeating in both cases, the German teams in two exciting finals.

And so to the Sydney Olympics in September. Each day the packed 15,000 stadium crowd were treated to some memorable moments of hockey. In the men's tournament, it was the Dutch team who once again booked their place in the final, although they had to overcome their Aussie hosts in a tense semi-final, which went to penalty strokes in extra time. The Olympic final itself was a wonderful advertisement for international hockey - a seesaw match between the Dutch and the 'underdogs', Korea, which produced six goals in normal time. The final drama was yet another penalty shoot out to decide the Olympic gold medallists.

The Australian 'Hockeyroos', so long a dominant force in women's hockey, were the undoubted tournament favourites. Undefeated in their pool and medal play-off matches, they found themselves up against the effervescent Argentinean team for the gold medal position. Did the 'Hockeyroos' experience count on the day?

Finally, to round off the year, in November, the FIH presented the 2000 International Player of the Year Award trophies during the Paris Congress. Can you guess the winners?

Enjoy the game !

Video "World Hockey Highlights 1999"

The year in hockey 1999, brought to you in more than an hour of action packed footage, is highlighted by the FIH's premier annual event, the men's and women's Champions Trophies.

In Brisbane, we see whether the defending champion Australian women can continue their dominance in the face of the Dutch challenge. A dramatic draw in pool play between the two teams sets the stage for a fiery clash in the finals.
As for the men from "Down Under", they leave no doubt of their berth in the final, winning all their pool matches. But who has the mettle to match them?

The other big hockey stories of 1999 were the key continental events that gave automatic Olympic berths. In both the men's and women's European finals, the top hockey nations Germany and the Netherlands clash. At the All Africa Games we see the South African teams assert their authority, while at the Pan American Games the Canadian Men and Argentinean Women earn their tickets to Sydney.

Finally, we celebrated the 75th birthday of the FIH with the first ever Player of the Year Awards!

Enjoy your trip as you travel the world of hockey!

Video "World Hockey Highlights 1998"

The 1998 FIH-AstroTurf World Hockey Highlights may be the most memorable yet. Captured here are the thrills, grandeur and excitement of the first ever double World Cup, as well as the Commonwealth Games Hockey Competition (men and women), and the 20th edition of the Men's Champions Trophy.

The Netherlands played host to 24 teams in 84 games of World Cup hockey over 13 days. And the home sides certainly didn't disappoint. The Dutch ladies earned a berth in the finals to challenge the defending World Champion Australians. An early Dutch goal put the Cup holders under pressure, but down almost never means out where the Australian ladies are involved.

In the men's tournament, it was Spain - and again the Dutch - earning places in the World Cup final. The Spaniards take a comfortable lead in the tense and thrilling encounter, only to see it erased by the Dutch in the closing minutes of regulation time. The World Championship is then decided in sudden death extra time.

The Commonwealth Games and the men's Champions Trophy round out this superb tape, which also brings you features and interviews with players and coaches.
