Jamie DWYER

Country:         Australia
Date of Birth: 12 March 1979

Position:         Forward

Australia's Jamie Dwyer is best-known for his match-winning goal in extra time in Athens which gave the Australian men's hockey team its first ever Olympic gold medal.

The Athens result was even more noteworthy for Dwyer given that a nasty knee injury at the 2003 Champions Trophy just 12 months earlier had placed his career in serious doubt.

Voted the FIH 'Young Player of the Year' in 2002, his tenacity in recuperating from the knee reconstruction was also rewarded with FIH 'Player of the Year' awards in 2004 and 2007.

Hailing from Queensland, he is a two-time Commonwealth Games gold medallist and played in the victorious Australian team at the 2005 Champions Trophy.

He set up a hockey coaching business in 2007 with Australian teammate Mark Knowles and spent time playing club hockey abroad post-Athens when he joined HC Bloemendaal to play alongside Dutch star Teun de Nooijer in the Netherlands.
