Rosie (Ambrosia) Malone (hockey) scored a late goal in the final against England at the Birmingham 2022 Commonwealth Games but it wasn’t enough to make up the deficit and Australia had to settle for their second successive silver medal.
Rosie started playing hockey at Burleigh Hockey Club on the Gold Coast when she was six. She was also an accomplished football player in her youth – she was selected on the Australian under-17 women’s team when she was 14 – and played NPL Women’s football for Souths United until she was forced to choose between the two sports when she was offered a place with the Hockeyroos squad in Perth in 2018.
In 2016 the then-teenager completed a rare treble by winning gold medals at three national levels – she captained the Queensland side that won the under-18 Australian championship, was part of the Queensland side that took out the Australian under-21 title, then helped the Queensland Scorchers win the Australian Hockey League title. She was also part of the Australian team that won bronze at the Junior Hockey World Cup in Chile. Malone made her Hockeyroos against Spain in January 2018, though she missed Commonwealth Games selection that year. She made her Olympic debut three years later in Tokyo and played her 100th game for Australia in the FIH Pro League against the USA in India in February 2024.
Rosie has a Bachelor of Arts in Sport Development from Griffith University and a master’s degree in journalism from Curtin University.
