 AUSTRALIA  2  HOLLAND  1 after extra time
 Jamie Dwyer slammed in a golden goal to spark wild celebrations among Australian fans after they destroyed Holland's hopes of completing a golden hat-trick with a well deserved 2-1 victory to capture their first ever Olympic gold medal. Trailing 1-0 at the interval, the Kookaburras recovered to level the scores and continued to dominate a pulsating match with their tireless work rate and superior first touch.
 At the end of the first period of extra time, Dwyer struck the winner from a switched penalty corner to complete a memorable triumph.
 
GERMANY  4  SPAIN  3  after extra time
 Bjoern Michels, a doctor from Munich and Germany's most capped player and leading goal scorer, celebrated the end of his international career with a brilliant deflected goal in the second period of extra time to steer his side to the bronze medal when they beat Spain 4-3. With the sides level 1-1 at half time, Spain twice took the lead after the restart forcing the world champions to raise their game and hit back to equalise. The medal was the first Olympic medal for the entire German squad.
