Terrorist Link to Aussie Hockey Victory

There is something about this that is so very characteristically Australian. The ABC posted a story about an imminent terrorist threat in New Dehli. It starts with:

The Department of Foreign Affairs (DFAT) has issued a warning to Australians to avoid markets in New Delhi, India.

The department says it has specific and credible information an attack could be imminent.

...and yet, somehow, ends with:

The run-up to the field hockey World Cup in February and March was overshadowed by concern that some teams might pull out, with one British team source telling AFP that the team only decided to attend at the last minute.

Ultimately, the tournament went ahead with a heavy police presence and passed off without incident, ending with an Australian victory in the final.

It's nice that they managed to work that in there.
