There’s no doubt that the one of the biggest fan favorites of the Olympics thus far have been the Dutch Women’s Field Hockey team. Not only are they absolutely beautiful, the team won the gold medal back in Beiing 2008. We’re no stranger to the likes of Ellen Hoog and Naomi van As because we’ve previously showed you the 9 Hotties of Women’s Field Hockey but we had no idea that the Dutch Olympic team would be stocked to the brim with such talent.
Ellen Hoog (#19 | Midfield | 26 Years Old)
I’m never one to play favorites (unless your name rhymes with “Indsie Ohan”) but Ellen Hoog of the Dutch national field hockey team might be the cutest girl to simultaneously wield a stick and a skirt at the same time. For those who might be thinking of courting her, you might want to get her last name right; it’s pronounced “Hohwg”
While Naomi is a forward/midfield for the Dutch national team, she splits her time equally between that, her club team HC Klein Zwitserland, and my dreams. While she’s actually dating Dutch speed skating star Sven Kramer, I figure that he poses no threat as long as you stay off the ice.
This 22-year-old was originally seen as one of the most promising young talents on the Dutch team. We’re not saying that she’s no longer “promising,” she’s now just “really good.” Lidewij is hoping to repeat her gold medal winning performance this year.
Sophie returns to the Dutch team after missing nearly the entire 2011 season due to injury. While she might be a little cold, Sophie’s a proven winner. Just look at the gold medal that she won in Beijing. To say that she’s stunning would be a complete understatement.
Kelly returns to the Dutch national team after a disappointing trip to Beijing. Yes, she traveled with the team but never dressed for any of the games; subsequently never receiving a gold medal. Don’t for one second think that she’s incapable of scoring as she nailed a goal within the first 10 minutes of her international debut.
Eva is a 23-year-old forward for the Dutch national team and was on the team that won the 2008 gold medal. When she’s not representing her country, Eva plays for SV Kampong. The Dutch game against Australia marked her 100th appearance playing for the Netherlands.
