Athlete Biography

1948 -

Victorian Douglas Golder was a member of the men’s hockey team that won a silver medal in 1976. Golder timed his rise to the national team for the Olympics perfectly – the silver medal was the only men’s hockey medal won by Australia between 1968 and 1992, despite the team being among the world’s best for much of that era. In Montreal, Australia lost the final 1-0 to New Zealand. The silver medal was one of only five medals won by Australia at the Games.
