It’s been another incredible Olympics for GB goalkeeper Maddie Hinch.
Five years on from the glory of Rio 2016, when her incredible display during that shootout played a starring role in winning gold, yet more Hinch heroics would help the team to another Olympic medal.
Great Britain Goalkeeper reflected on the magnitude of the moment, saying:
“It’s hard to put into words what this journey has been like. It’s been the biggest emotional rollercoaster since Rio, for me personally it’s been really tough.
“We deserve it here. We knew that if we could find the form that we’ve shown in pieces over the last five years and consistently put that together then we’d be in the running. To come home with a medal is just a remarkable achievement for this group and I’m just so proud of the girls.
“We like to keep things exciting don’t we! My heart rate was through the roof.”
“There was a reason India were in this medal match, they’ve got a cracking corner and we knew that would be a big threat. We had to ride out patches, but we knew we had more goals in us and just needed to tidy up a little at the back to reduce their corner count. I’m glad it’s over!”
