Introduction to Hockey


Hockey for men first appeared on the Olympic programme in 1908, which England won. It then disappeared off the schedule until 1920 and has been part of the games ever since. Women’s hockey was introduced in 1980. In Beijing 2008 the women's competition was increased from 10 to 12 teams; the same number that compete in the men's tournament.
