George Pinner

George made his international tournament debut in 2011 at the Champions Trophy in Auckland where the team finished sixth, four years after his first international game against New Zealand. George, from Ipswich, plays his club hockey at Holcombe in Kent. In June 2012 he was one of seven GB hockey athletes to pose for the centrefold of Cosmopolitan magazine as part of a campaign to raise awareness of male cancers and the Everyman cancer charity, and he was a reserve athlete for the Olympic team that year and has stepped up into the No1 slot since 2012, winning goalkeeper of the tournament at the Hockey Champions Trophy in 2016 before heading off to Rio for his first Olympics as the No1.
