Team GB's newest dad - Hockey Captain Adam Dixon
There are set to be three new dads in Team GB's hockey squad for Tokyo. And that's a rarity.
Adam Dixon is Team GB's newest dad, becoming a father in late January. The England and GB Hockey captain talks about the life-changing moment and what it means for his sporting day job.
The delay to the Olympics means there'll be three fathers training for GB Hockey, which is certainly out of the ordinary.
And Adam hasn't let lockdown stop his life. When the Olympics were cancelled in 2020 he brought forward his wedding.
But it's back to business today as he returns to training after the birth. It's been a challenging year as captain. They've had little match action, either for club or country, so they've had to be inventive to prepare themselves for the Olympic Games.
