Hockeyroos coach out

It’s less than 4 months out from the Tokyo Olympics, and the Hockeyroos have lost their coach Paul Gaudoin. No, he’s not wandering around a confusing shopping mall, he resigned yesterday in the wake of an independent review that described a “dysfunctional culture” at the top of women’s hockey, and he follows high-performance director Toni Cumpston and assistant coach Steph Andrew out the door. The review was launched in December after claims of bullying and chaos. More than 100 people were interviewed for the review, which made 29 recommendations and said there was a need for more effective leadership. With Tokyo around the corner, Hockey Australia said it will fast track the necessary changes.
