Australian reaches 100-game mark at CC1

Tim Pullman, the Australian umpire, was presented with his golden whistle after umpiring his 100th senior international match at the Champions Challenge 1 in Johannesburg. Seif Ahmed, the FIH’s representative at the tournament, made the presentation after the game between Malaysia and Canada.

The 36-year-old took charge of his first international, between Canada and India, at a 4-nations event in Canberra in 1999. Since then he has travelled to major tournaments all round the world including the Junior World Cup in Hobart in 2001, 2 Commonwealth Games, 1 Champions Trophy and 1 World Cup.

Born in Libya where his father worked, he now lives in Adelaide. A chartered accountant, he is a partner at BDO in the city.

Delighted to have reached the milestone he commented: “It’s so satisfying to celebrate it with a good bunch of colleagues in South Africa. We have such a good group dynamic and the celebrations were most enjoyable! It’s an honour to have been given so many opportunities by the FIH and it’s all been a wonderful experience.”
