  • Alex strikes the right note for role models

    Great Britain and England star Alex Danson is one of the best forwards in the game, but when the Great Britain and England athlete isn’t slotting the ball into the back of the net, she has a host of commitments that keep her busy.

    As one of UK Sport’s funded athletes, Alex Danson is expected to do a minimum number of six hours service to charities and projects in Great Britain but, last year, the 28-year-old spent more than 200 hours of her time visiting hockey clubs, speaking at seminars, supporting charities and coaching youth groups. She was praised by the chief executive of UK Sport, Liz Nicholls for her commitments and the fact that she puts in more hours of voluntary work than any other funded athlete in the UK.  The England and Great Britain star took some time out of her busy schedule to tell us a little about her work. Among the projects that Alex has thrown herself into are coaching days for juniors at local clubs, working with the FreFlyers team in some of East London’s most deprived areas, addressing the National Women’s Register on the topic of female role models, taking part in a marathon aerobics class for the MacMillan Cancer charity and speaking at the House of Lords...  x 11 More

    Katrina Powell has always pushed herself, two Olympic gold medals is testament to that. And now the former Hockeyroo is leading by example as she works her way to the top ranks of hockey coaching, with the ultimate aim of coaching a senior international team.  “I am forever asking more of my athletes and pushing them to be better, and so I must also ask the same of myself,” said Katrina. “The better coach, communicator and person I can be, the better I can assist them in obtaining their hockey and life goals.”  Katrina won her first gold medal in 1996, and played in two subsequent Olympic Games, winning her second gold in front of a home crowd at the 2000 Sydney Games. She represented Australia 252 times, scoring a tremendous 141 goals.
