Alison Peek

1969 -

Alison Peek won a gold medal for Australia in women’s hockey at Sydney 2000. The dual Olympian had made her Games debut eight years earlier in Barcelona, where the team finished fifth. She missed out on the 1996 Games, where the Hockeyroos won the gold medal. Peek returned to the Olympic stage in Sydney and played strongly as the Hockeyroos enjoyed a fine tournament. From its eight matches, the Hockeyroos won seven and drew one, outscoring its opponents 25-5. Australia beat Argentina 3-1 in the final to become the first women’s hockey team to successfully defend an Olympic title.
