– Chris McGeorge, Elite Athlete Officer at Loughborough College
"When Team GB Hockey re-located to the National Sports Centre at Bisham Abbey in Buckinghamshire, Nicola knew she would have to drop everything and move there to live and train if she wanted to be part of the squad.
"So we told her she did not have to give up the degree in Sports Science she was studying for with us.
"We would go out of our way to make it possible for her to continue her studies flexibly with us while still making the most of her opportunities with the GB squad."
Team GB player Nicola White has just been told she has made the Olympic hockey team and will be going for gold this summer in London.
Chris McGeorge, Elite Athlete Officer at Loughborough College said, that Loughborough College will go "out of their way" to make it possible for her to continue her studies flexibly.
