Two gold-medal winning Olympians visited Salisbury last week and put on sessions for the lucky members of Salisbury Hockey Club.

Kate Richardson-Walsh, 38, and Helen Richardson-Walsh, 36, were both part of Team GB's women's hockey team that won gold at the 2016 Rio Olympics.

They held two sessions, one for the younger players and one for the senior players, as well as a presentation followed by question and answer session.

Players were able to play alongside Kate and Helen and the goalkeepers faced shots from Helen, GB’s dedicate penalty stroke taker.

They then presented a video of their journey to Olympic gold and answered questions, giving an insight into their journey and personal challenges they faced along the way.

A spokesperson from the club said: "Kate and Helen are a truly inspiring duo - both are highly accomplished women who show the sporting world and the country that, through the combination of self-belief, persistence and an acceptance of changing attitudes, it is possible to be yourself and achieve world domination in your field.

"Accomplished speakers, they offered us a motivational presentation and can offer a team-building workshop. Working together to ensure diversity is accepted and to create a legacy in sport, both on and off the pitch, the continue their ground-breaking work, with particular emphasis on encouragement and support in all levels of hockey across the UK.

"Thank you also to Peter Dixon-Clarke for organising this fantastic day."
