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 the top step of the podium at the 2015 Europeans and boasts a number of other medals from major tournaments too, including a second Olympic medal as she won bronze at Tokyo 2020.

Susannah struggled with injury after Rio but has since hit back on all cylinders and played a crucial role for GB in the lead up to and during the 2020 Olympics.

Known for also organising legendary socials for the squad, Susannah announced her retirement from international hockey in August 2021.
