SBE graduate Laura Unsworth wins gold with Team GB women's hockey

SBE graduate Laura Unsworth, along with fellow Loughborough alumnae Giselle Ansley, Maddie Hinch, Hannah MacLeod and Nicola White, won the Olympic gold in the women's hockey final last Friday! 

Team GB women’s hockey team enjoyed a phenomenal Olympics, winning all five of their group games plus their quarter and semi-final matches. Taking on New Zealand for a place in the final, Team GB went in front in the second quarter and from then on controlled the game.

And now after an incredible game against the Netherlands, Team GB are coming back as Olympics champions! 

Laura was a key player in the team that secured bronze in the London 2012 games and has not only repeated but exceeded this success at the Rio 2016 Olympics.

Massive congratulations to Laura and the rest of the team!
