Nick Bandurak marked a home Commonwealth Games in style, as he finished top scorer of the men's tournament as England won bronze at Birmingham 2022.
The Wolverhampton-born marksman fired in 11 goals as England sealed a third-consecutive bronze, cruising through the group alongside India before narrowly losing to eventual champions Australia.
It took Bandurak until he was 29 to earn his maiden international call-up, with the Holcombe forward admitting he thought his chance had passed him by.
But Bandurak has seized the opportunity since, finishing as England's top scorer in the 2021/22 FIH Pro League with 10 goals and was named the Hockey Writers' Club men's player of the year in March 2022, before shining at the Commonwealth Games that summer.
His international pedigree has only grown since, with a debut for Great Britain coming in December and his incredible scoring rate continuing.
Away from playing, he also holds a keen interest in the coverage of the sport, editing Hockey World News and working as a freelance copywriter and content marketing specialist.
