    Congratulations upon successful completion of your field hockey on-field officials exam.

    Your whistles* and officials on-field uniform will be delivered shortly to the address you have on file with your application.

    The IOC will be contacting you about your officiating schedule at the Olympics via separate correspondence.

    Thank you, and again, congratulations.


    *Multiple, as you'll be going through at least one per match.

    I want single digit scoring.
    I'll give you gaoltending but then we need to make it multiple baskets that they would need to defend and also 4/5/6/etc point lines too.

    Field hockey is definitely a sport that is screwed up because of terrible rules* and even worse equipment.

    You could do a lot with that sport and make it really cool, with just a few changes.

    But as it stands it's the only team sport for straight women, so leave it alone.


    * The worst case: basketball. Basketball needs a goalie, a single point for all baskets, foul outs without shooting, two 10-minute halves, and zero timeouts. If basketball games came down to say 6-5 they would be thrilling.

    Did you say something about rules and run of play?

    cc: Kep - they're plenty legal!

    I thought I saw that the women qualified for 3x3?

    It's funny because I'm sure it only existed so the networks could have more NBA stars.

    We lost to Holland, the tallest country on Earth. So basically we lost because we eat sh-tty processed food.
