The 34-year-old also tasted Commonwealth Games gold in 2010 and won four Oceania Cups in a decorated career.

The Canberra Lakers captain thanked his family, teammates, coaches and the hockey community for helping him realise his dream of playing for Australia.

«Thanks to Hockey ACT and ACTAS for everything in helping me become a better player. A few of my favourite memories are playing with some of my best mates for the Lakers,» Turner said.

Hockey Australia director Toni Cumpston added: «GT was heavily involved in a decorated period for the Kookaburras and will go down as an Olympic medal winner, two-time Olympian and two-time World Cup winner, along with many other honours. His goals-per-game ratio will long be one of the best in Australian Hockey.»
