Hockey star Helen's tips for the top

News Sport

Helen Richardson-Walsh, Hockey Gold medallist at the Rio 2016 Olympic Games and quadruple Olympian, visited the Senior Leys Sports Academy to pass on her advice and experience to its hockey players.

Helen is an Athlete Role Model for the 2018 Youth Olympic Games and works with young hockey players - she recently came to the first Leys Hockey Hub for local primary school players. 

After telling the Sports Academy about what it had taken to get to the top and the challenges involved, including the demands of fitness training, managing nutrition and sports funding, she joined pupils on the astroturf pitches for a coaching session.

Peter White, Head of the Leys Sports Academy, gave the vote of thanks.
