Ellen HoogEllen HoogEllen HoogEllen HoogEllen Hoog

Ellen Hoog, born March 26, 1986 in Bloemendaal, Netherlands is a Dutch female field hockey player of the first ladies team of Amsterdam. She is also a member of the Dutch National Women's Team and is a striker. In 2004 she made her debut in the national team. She has played 34 matches for the national team in which she has scored 7 times. In August 2005, she became European Champion in Dublin , Ireland. In December of the same year she won the Champions Trophy in Canberra, Australia with the Dutch National Women's Team. She was also part of the Dutch squad that became World Champion at the 2006 Women's Hockey World Cup. Her father died from cancer a week after the European Championship victory in Ireland. After his death she had difficulties picking up her normal life again, but regained the motivation to start playing when the new season started in October 2005.

Hoog started with hockey and five years later was selected for the Dutch B, which she played in for two years. In 2003 she arrived at the Juniors and a year later as the attacker in Dutch National Team Hockey. With this team they became European Champion in 2005 and in 2006 even World Champions. But, still fresh in her memory is the exceptional result gained at the Beijing Olympics with a Gold Medal. Meanwhile she has played over 90 matches and scored 16 times. Even though hockey is her passion, between classes and races she is also a student at the Hogeschool Amsterdam Media and Information Management. The remaining time she devotes to hockey and studying and spends time actively giving clinics and motivational presentations on perseverance and reaching the top. Another interest of hers is fashion and clothing, and she occasionally does some fashion photo shoots.
