Way of Life! SWIFT FROM $16,490 DRIVE AWAY The Kookaburras celebrate winning their fourth consecutive Champions Trophy. Australia defeated Spain 1-0 in the final in Auckland Picture: SANDRA MU, Getty Images Champs again HOCKEY THE Kookaburras reassured themselves their Olympic gold medal campaign is on track by claiming an unprecedented fourth consecutive Champions Trophy mens hockey title yesterday. Australia, with Territor ian Des Abbott in its ranks, overcame Spain 1-0 in a defence-dominated final. Skipper Eddie Ockenden struck the winner for world No. 1-ranked Australia 12 minutes from time from the games only penalty corner. The goal was hotly disputed by the Spaniards, who claimed Glenn Simpsons flicked assist during a goalmouth scramble was dangerous, but the video umpire turned down the appeal. The result in Auckland handed the Kookaburras their 12th Trophy crown in the 33-year history of the tournament, and with the London Olympics looming in seven months its another paving stone on that path for coach Ric Charlesworths men, after some unusually patchy results in 2011. Its a step, I guess, said Australian superstar Jamie Dwyer, who collected the tournaments top scorer award from seven goals in six games a day after lifting his fifth world player of the year award. We didnt know what to expect coming here. We had a mixed year this year. Spains skipper, Santi Freixa, got the player of the tournament accolade. Of the goal dispute, Charlesworth said: I dont understand some of the rules of hockey. If the ball flies past you and into the net, thats okay. If it hits you, its not. Its pretty stupid. We thought it was clear that no player had to avoid it, he said. THORNE TO FACE HEAT FOR LONG HIT Page 36
