She has only been in the country for 48 hours but already 24-year-old Giselle Ansley was back on home turf in the West Country - showing off her medal in Falmouth.
Ansley, from Kingsbridge in Devon was a member of the GB team who made history by winning the Olympic title for the first time when they beat The Netherlands in a dramatic penalty shoot-out in Rio last Friday.
The gold medallist was in Cornwall to celebrate Hockeyfest at Penryn College.
The aim of the festival is to build on the success and excitement of Rio and to inspire a new generation of hockey players.
People of all ages turned out at Falmouth Hockey Club to meet the hockey star.
Kids queued up to get her autograph, listen to her talk about her career, and of course watch her in action doing a penalty flick.

A North Somerset gymnast who helped Team GB women finish fifth in the all-round competition has announced her retirement.
Ruby Harrold showed poise and strength during her uneven bars routine, but has decided to finish her career as an elite gymnast in favour of university.
The 20-year-old, who trains at Portishead, will head to Louisiana State University this September - a move she has put off for three years.
I'm looking forward to starting a new chapter in my life in college gymnastics, but leaving what I know behind will be hard.
Special thankyou to all the girls in the GB squad. You've helped make the tough times manageable and the great times unforgettable.
