Shona McCallin

After her parents got her started playing hockey at 6 to try and get rid of energy, hockey's long been a part of Shona's life. 

Playing football to an Academy standard until she was 14, Shona had to make a choice between a football and a hockey career, and since then she's made a great difference to her hockey teams. 

Her proudest moment was captaining the England U21s to fourth place at the Junior World Cup in Monchengladbach, Germany, in 2013. Fluent in Dutch, Shona lived in Holland for three and a half years playing hockey for MOP and studying International Business at Tilburg University. 

Since her debut she has adapted to international hockey with aplomb with the highlight being her role in the EuroHockey Championships gold medal in 2015, followed up with another gold medal, this time at her first Olympic Games in Rio.
