The Telegraph has named Kate Richardson-Walsh in the top 20 most influential women in British sport.

Kate was named as the 17th most influential woman in British sport.

Having captained both GB and England for 13 years, Kate’s most memorial moment came at the 2016 Rio Olympics where she won Gold with Team GB. Television ratings reached 9 million for the Final in Rio which testifies the impact the team had on the nation – Kate was influential in leading the side to Gold.

She currently serves as an ambassador for the Women’s Sport Trust, supports disability hockey as an ambassador for Access Sport, and sits on the British and European Olympic Athlete’s Commissions.
