Loughborough College they will go "out of their way" to help Nicola continue her studies

"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."

– Chris McGeorge, Elite Athlete Officer at Loughborough College
