London 2012 Field Hockey
Today on the 1st of August, 2012 when I opened my Google Search page, I was pleasantly surprised to find the Google Doodle for the day to be the London 2012 Field Hockey Google Doodle. Hockey is one of my personal favorite sports and it is seldom televised in South Africa. The honor that Google have bestowed on the London 2012 Hockey and the sport of hockey by creating the Google Doodle for Hockey made my day.
Many people still do not realize the enormous marketing and exposure events, birthdays and historical events receive when Google creates a Doodle of a specific event, birthday, sport or historical event. Google does not allow advertising on there FrontPage, making it the most wanted and likely most expensive advertising page on the internet.
Hopefully the attention that Google provided to the London 2012 Hockey competition will have a positive effect on the game and the amount of media exposure Hockey receives from the media.
Description of the London 2012 Hockey Google Doodle
In the Google Doodle the Doodler used a female hockey player. In some countries hockey is considered a female sport. In these countries males usually are more prominent in sports like Rugby, Cricket and Soccer, yet in the Olympics female players were only allowed to participate in hockey since 1980 where male teams already played from 1908.
One thing that caught my attention about the London 2012 Olympics is the fact that the field is green, from 1976 Olympic hockey have been played on artificial turf and not grass. In the London 2012 Hockey competition all games are played for the first time on blue hockey fields and I would have liked to see the Doodle showcasing the blue hockey fields and not green.
The hockey player looks like she is on the way to score, in hockey one needs to hit the ball through the goals to score within the scoring circle.
