KATE RICHARDSON-WALSH on finding golden moments
Ed says: "Field hockey is one of those sports I’ve always greatly admired from afar. As both spectator and participant my attention has largely been taken by other disciplines: rugby, athletics and, somewhat left of field, gymnastics. Had they not been in the way, I always thought hockey would’ve been my game of choice.
The Olympics have always provided a hockey fix. Every four years, the event would find a firm place in my viewing schedule. Sean Kerly and his gold medal run at the 1998 Seoul Olympics opened the door, but it was the women’s team and their exploits at the 2016 Rio games that smashed the doors down. I cry very rarely, especially at sport. But I’ll admit to a tear escaping when the team took that epic gold.
At the very heart of that team was their captain, Kate Richardson-Walsh, who we’re delighted to welcome to this week’s Podium Podcast. It’s a story worthy of Hollywood, culminating in one final golden moment. Enjoy!"
