An inspirational and charismatic leader she has been widely credited for helping build the incredible team ethos and commitment that drove the GB team to a nail biting victory at the Rio Olympic Games.  In winning gold Kate Richardson-Walsh also made history in other ways, becoming one half of the first same-sex married couple to win an Olympic medal playing in the same team.
