FOUR gold and two silver medals - that's the impressive number of world championship medals Eden Brown has won in six attempts.
The Wollongong University Underwater Hockey Club member's latest success came when she led the Australian Masters Ladies team to gold at the Underwater Hockey World Championships in Hungary recently.
The player/coach was instrumental as Australia won all their pool matches before defeating South Africa 7-2 in the final.
Brown's Wollongong club-mate Phil Ackerman is also a world champion. He was part of the Australian Masters Men's team, which won an epic final 4-1 against the Netherlands to secure gold at the championships, played in late August.
"It was a great event for Australia all up," Brown said.
"Personally it was great to win another gold medal for Australia. To go through the tournament undefeated was also special.
"I also had the honour of walking out with our flag bearer [Alex Barnes-Keoghan]. That was a privilege in itself."
With 84 athletes and more than 10 support staff, it was the largest contingent Australia has ever sent to an international tournament.
Fortunately it was worth it, with all seven Australian teams progressing through to the semi-final stage and four teams collecting medals.
The men's and women's masters were crowned world champions after winning their respective finals, while the under-23 men had to settle for a silver medal after losing their hard-fought final 4-2 to New Zealand.
Australia's elite men recovered from a heart-breaking semi-final loss to France (2-1 after extra time) to collect a bronze medal after beating Britain 7-1.
Both the under-19s men's and women's team were narrowly beaten 4-3 in their respective finals against France and South Africa.
Brown is undecided about contesting her seventh world championships in South Africa in 2016.
