Celebrating 100 days until the Hockey World Cup
Yesterday we were at Lee Valley Hockey and Tennis Centre in East London as 100 schoolchildren gathered to celebrate the 100-day countdown until the start of the Vitality Hockey Women’s World Cup 2018.
The schoolchildren will be joined by four Olympic Gold Medallists – Shona McCallin, Nicola White, Hannah MacLeod and Georgie Twigg – who were part of the triumphant Great Britain hockey team at Rio 2016.
ITV London were in attendance to film the event and interview the Olympians.
The Vitality Hockey Women’s World Cup takes place from 21 July to 5 August 2018 and will see England face off against India, United States of America and Ireland in Pool B.
This is the biggest women’s hockey event in the world. A total of 16 world-class teams, including England, will be welcomed to the Lee Valley Hockey and Tennis Centre on Stratford's Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park, the home of the sport.
