The Netherlands became the first country to win four Olympic titles in the women’s hockey event after a dominant 3-1 victory over Argentina in Friday’s final.
The world No.1 team, who were denied a third successive gold medal by Great Britain at Rio 2016, scored three goals in the space of six minutes in the second quarter before Argentina pulled a goal back.
The score remained at 3-1 in the third and fourth quarters before the Dutch players burst into celebration at the final whistle.
Friday’s gold medal for the Netherlands extends a remarkable streak with the team now finishing on the podium at each of its past 25 major tournaments -- Olympic Games, World Cups and European championships.
The last time they failed to do so was a sixth-place finish at the 1994 World Cup.
Argentina claimed silver -- their fifth Olympic medal in women's hockey -- adding to its silvers won at Sydney 2000 and London 2012, and bronze medals won at Athens 2004 and Beijing 2008.
Earlier on Friday, Great Britain defeated India 4-3 to win the bronze medal.
