Hockey in London is becoming more and more popular. The London 2012 Olympics gave hockey a real boost here in the capital, and more Londoners are now playing hockey than ever before. Under 16's club hockey in London is up 40%, a fantastic boost for the grass-roots of the sport.
Team GB women take gold in the final at the Rio 2016 Olympics, beating womens' favourites the Netherlands in a gripping penalty shootout.
Check out the youtube video above (produced by the International Hockey Federation) of the England vs Australia Women's Hockey World League Final in London, June 2013. Semi-finals on Saturday 12 and finals on Sunday 13 December.
