A no-nonsense player, Grace Balsdon is the rock at the heart of England women’s hockey defence.

Set for her second Commonwealth Games, the 29-year-old is hoping to go two better than the bronze medal she won in Gold Coast four years ago.

Balsdon made her international debut at the age of 20 and has been a mainstay of the Great Britain and England teams since 2017.

Outside of hockey, the Kent native is a keen baker and also collects vinyl records.

This intense, fast-paced sport has been part of the Commonwealth Games since 1998 and will see teams dribble, sprint and tackle their way to victory over 60 minutes of on-pitch action.
