As expected the final of the women's field hockey tournament will be contested between the two powerhouses Argentina and the Netherlands.

Argentina's Las Leonas have won 2 out of the last 3 world cups, and 5 champions trophy titles. However they have never won the biggest prize of all, the olympic gold medal, winning silver at Sydney and bronze at Athens and Beijing.

Luciana Aymar is widely regarded as the best player of all-time in the sport, so it would be fitting if she could finally get a gold medal around her neck after 3 near misses. However the Dutch ladies are formidable and will looking to retain their olympic title.

The two teams have a very competitive and even rivalry, so that will be an interesting final for sure. They both have a lot of talent on and off the astroturf.

Why doesn't Eaton do long jump? His record for only doing the decathlon is almost certainly good enough to take on the current field.

Ginobili's best attribute: generating fouls. He's way too smart and experienced to let his team choke under these circumstances.

Didn't know Croatia is meeting Tunis in wrestling, it was supposed to be handball.

Are Croatian posters actually able to talk about anything other than Croatia?

No.

Red card for a Tunisian player. Seems like they've been attending the French school of handball.

Lots of links between France and Tunisia, except when Tunisia do the butchering it's halal meat of course.
