Hockeyroos end Olympics gutted but proud

They were left gutted and out of medal contention, but the Australian women's hockey team members say they're proud of their achievements at the London Olympics.

The Hockeyroos failed to book a spot in the semi-finals after drawing 0-0 with Argentina early on Tuesday morning (AEST).

With an earlier loss to New Zealand, the Aussies finished third in their group and missed the medal playoffs on goal difference.

But defender Jayde Taylor remained upbeat, as did her teammates.

"Absolutely gutted! But so damn proud! I have a feeling this is just the beginning for the @Hockeyroos !! Thx for the amazing support!!" the 27-year-old posted on Twitter.

Fellow Hockeyroo Georgie Parker echoed Taylor's sentiments, with a warning to future competitors.

"Am SO proud to say that I am a hockeyroo. Bad luck girls. All I can say is, watch our (sic) world The @Hockeyroos are coming. #London2012" she wrote on the microblogging site.

Anna Flanagan, one of the squad's youngest players and making her Olympic debut, said the team left nothing out on the field.

"Out of the finals by goal difference, thankyou for all the kind message... proud of the girls, we gave it everything. #standtogether" she said.

The tweets follow coach Adam Commens' spray over errors in the Olympics' video referral system, which he blamed for Australia's elimination.

"Two umpire mistakes and it cost us a semi-final place. To me, that's unacceptable," Commens said.
