Jamie Dwyer has been named the world’s best hockey player five times making him Australia’s best ever hockey product. Jamie’s incredible talent resulted in him being awarded the FIH World Hockey Player of the Year in 2004, and again in 2007, 2009, 2010 and 2011. He is also an Olympic Gold medallist having also taken home two Bronze medals. Dwyer is currently working towards the Commonwealth games, held in Glasgow this July.
Growing up in Rockhampton, Jamie’s parents played hockey at the local grounds and introduced him to the sport at the age of four. Jamie’s success is evident to all and as one of the most experienced hockey players in the Australian Squad he has played over 250 games, in which he has scored over 170 international goals.
The stand out moment for Jamie in his career was scoring the winning goal in the 2004 gold medal match, in which the Australia Men’s hockey team won their very first Olympic gold medal.
Not only did this break the 48 year drought, but it was a large factor in him being awarded FIH Word Hockey Player of the Year that year.
