Susannah Townsend

A fierce competitor, Townsend made her international debut back in 2008 and was part of the Great Britain team that won Olympic Gold at Rio 2016.

She also helped England to a remarkable gold at the 2015 Europeans and have a number of other medals from major tournaments to her name too.

Susannah struggled with injury after Rio but has since hit back on all cylinders and played a crucial role as GB qualified for a place at the Tokyo 2020 Olympics.

She also has four siblings, including a twin brother, while her parents can be found cheering her on at nearly every international game no matter where it is played.
