Ellen Hoog (field hockey)

The famous field hockey player, Ellen Hoog, was born in Overveen, Netherlands. She began her prosperous run in the sport at a very young age and became a crucial part of the Dutch National Team in 2004. Ellen became a member of the prestigious Amsterdamsche Hockey & Bandy Club as well. Her investment in the sport paid off when she brought home a couple of gold medals in the 2008 and 2012 Olympics.

At the 2012 Summer Olympics, Ellen became the first-ever player to decide a major championship match following a penalty shootout. The same thing happened in 2016 when her team managed to get the second spot in the world of field hockey after she took the winning shot. Even though they only got silver that year at the Olympics, 2016 is a memorable year for Hoog since she’s the one who took the game-winning shot in their game against Germany.
