Field hockey isn't the most publicized of sports, but one Olympic team has been blowing up lately. The Netherlands appears to have fielded a squad composed entirely of beautiful Dutch women, and the Web has taken notice. They're all over Twitter and Facebook, sports columnists are gushing and the names Sophie Polkamp and Ellen Hoog (above) are on everyone's lips or keyboards. On top of all that, apparently the team is pretty good. Click through this bio-gallery for more.
The Dutch national team has historically been one of the best field hockey outfits in the world, and currently sits at number one in the International Hockey Federation rankings.
They've placed in the top three positions at the last four Olympic Games.
The team took first at the 2008 Beijing Olympics.
Their last Olympic gold before that was at the 1984 games in Los Angeles.
They're also the most successful team in World Cup History, having won the title six times.
We're still pulling for the U.S. team, but we're going to be keeping a close eye on these girls, too.
