HOCKEY: LINCOLNSHIRE QUARTET GRAB GOLD

Lincoln’s Georgie Twigg and her county compatriots Crista Cullen, Hannah Mcleod and Shona McCallin last night created history as part of the Great Britain’s women hockey team after beating defending champions the Netherlands in a dramatic penalty shoot-out to claim the gold medal.

Victory meant Georgie’s girls won every game throughout the tournament and denied the world’s number one team a third successive gold.

The British team, who claimed bronze at London 2012  dealt with long spells of pressure by the Dutch to reach the final whistle tied at 3-3.

Britain took the penalty shootout 2-0.
