Sutton Coldfield’s Laura Unsworth becomes most-decorated GB hockey star
Unsworth helped Britain beat India in a 4-3 thriller to claim bronze and keep their proud place on the women’s hockey podium.
Unsworth, 33, became the first British male or female hockey player to capture three Olympic medals – bronze in London and Tokyo, and gold at the 2016 Rio Olympics.
“To be honest, it probably is up there with the Rio gold medal,” she said. “The things we have had to overcome as a team, people don’t know about. As a squad, we stuck together. We have been resilient – we fight.
“If someone told me when I first started playing hockey when I was 11 that I would win three Olympic medals, I would have just looked at them and said: ‘you what’?”
