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.
Cornwall's rowing star Helen Glover has had an 'amazing surprise' after returning home following her Olympic victory. The gold medallist took to twitter after finding a gold postbox- apparently painted by her neighbours.
During the London Olympics and paralympics in 2012, the Royal Mail painted post boxes gold to to celebrate every Team GB and ParalympicsGB gold medal.
