Published on: 13th July, 2021

Hollie Pearne-Webb is the Team GB women's hockey captain. She was part of the gold medal winning team in Rio. And she had a key role in that victory. Hollie took the penalty shuffle that gave Team GB an historic gold against the Netherlands.

Hollie talks about the penalty moment and what it meant. She discussed captaincy during Covid and how she likes having a job alongside playing hockey.

The team have just arrived in Tokyo ready to defend their title and we chat about going in to the Games as holders.
