Maddie Hinch

Maddie shot to international sporting prominence during the Rio 2016 Olympics with her acrobatics and penalty shootout heroics, saving four efforts as GB won a memorable gold.

That followed a similarly stunning performance that saw England claim a first EuroHockey title against the same opponents the year before, while she has also been voted the FIH World Goalkeeper of the Year on three successive occasions.

She may not have taken up the sport had it not been for her PE teacher, who noted her willingness to throw herself about while playing rounders and suggested she might be better suited in a hockey goal.

Having starred for England during the 2018 Vitality Hockey Women’s World Cup, Maddie took a break from international hockey before returning during the 2019 FIH Pro League determined to help GB on their road to Tokyo 2020.
