The New Zealand men's hockey team have finished third at the Six Nations tournament in Valencia following a 4-1 win over Argentina.
New Zealand dominated the world's seventh ranked side holding the majority of the possession.
The Black Sticks scored a goal in each quarter through Shay Neal, Nick Wilson, Simon Child and Stephen Jenness to race out to a four goal buffer before a late Argentina consolation.
From five games at the tournament the Black Sticks finished with two wins, two losses and a draw with this morning's result sealing a third place finish.
Head coach Colin Batch said it was pleasing to finish strongly with their best performance at the tournament.
"It was a very good effort from us today, we controlled the game well and scored some impressive field goals," he said.
"We went into the game looking to finish well at the tournament and we certainly did that, it's significant that we played our best match at the end.
"It was a big step up for us and we walk away with the bronze medal which is a good reward for a good performance against one of the top teams who will be at Rio."
The Black Sticks now travel home to New Zealand for their final preparations before next month's Rio Olympic Games.
