Over the course of her 17-year international career Helen amassed a Commonwealth bronze and two silvers, a bronze at London 2012, and the European Championship title in 2015. She reached the pinnacle of her sport as part of the celebrated GB hockey team that beat the Netherlands in Rio, stepping on to the podium alongside her team mate and wife, GB captain Kate Richardson-Walsh. Helen was one of only two players to score during a tense penalty shootout and is recognised at world level as one of the best in the business – shortlisted for the World Player of the Year Award and named in the FIH World All Stars Team three times. Alongside GB Head Coach Danny Kerry and a close knit team of senior players they put in place team values, behaviours and tactics to create a winning culture within the squad. ‘Be the Difference, Create History and Inspire the Future’ was their team mantra and having stepped down from international duty with almost 300 caps, Helen continues to play at club level in Cambridge.
