Sydney’s gay and lesbian hockey club, the Bentstix, took out gold at the World Outgames in Copenhagen last week.
It’s the side’s second win in two tours of Europe. Their first win was at the 2005 Eurogames in Utrecht.
“This Bentstix team were probably the best team ever assembled under the Bentstix banner and Sydney, and indeed Australia, should be very proud of its second pink hockey world championship medal,” Bentstix general manager Danny Caretti said.
In the face of a tough competition the Bentstix fought hard to take out the competition.
“Despite the arduous schedule of five days of hockey, the Bentstix players held up well in the face of very strong competition from the Dutch and the British,” Bentstix’s captain Anthony Hartley said.
The team is expected to arrive back in Australia at the end of the week.
