Rio 2016 was Kate's fourth Games and finally yielded the coveted Olympic Gold medal. From a disastrous low of 11th place at the World Cup in 2014, a process of self-examination and rebuilding was instigated in which the team built and signed up to their own collective culture of behaviour, created a sense of common purpose and installed a distributed leadership structure to make sure this lived and breathed every day. Alongside this a process of learning through experience and collective reflection helped build a team that was able to adapt and withstand pressure whenever circumstances. Kate currently serves as an ambassador for UN Women and the Women's Sport Trust and supports disability hockey as an ambassador for Access Sport.
