  • Unfortunately, in sport, things do not always go to plan

    After the high of winning Gold at the 2010 Commonwealth Games in Delhi I knew that I was going to do everything it took to replicate that feeling and achieve the same goal at the Olympics. Gold at London 2012 was my goal, my focus, my dream. I was picked in the Olympic squad late in 2011 and had the process of achieving my dream all planned out. Unfortunately, in sport, things do not always go to plan.

  • Tour Update – Korea Series Perth » Rachael Lynch

    Sorry I have been a little slack lately in writing new posts. We have had a crazy few weeks with our fundraiser and then a series against Korea. We were lucky enough to have two Korean teams come out to visit us and play games against both the Hockeyroos and the Australia ‘A’ team. Korea sent their national side and also a team called KT Korea. There were 10 games all together. Australia ‘A’ played KT in 4 games then Korea in 2 and the Hockeyroos played Korea 4 times. I have attached the media reports from each game below so if you are interested then I encourage you to have a read. We won the series 3-1 and were quite happy with all games except the first one. Once we found our feet we were able to beat Korea quite convincingly. Australia ‘A’ also had some pleasing performances against both teams.

  • Hockeyroos defeat world champions to win 4 Nations tournament

    Argentina were desperate to find an equaliser as soon as possible, but as has been the case for the majority of the tournament the Hockeyroos defence proved to be up to the challenge, with goalkeeper Rachael Lynch getting good support from the likes of key player Kobie McGurk and others.

    Would you believe that at the time of this report there is 314 days 10 hours, 3 minutes and 58 seconds until the Olympics! It may sound like a long time but I tell you what, this year is flying and I know next year will too. The Hockeyroos preparations are going swimmingly with training keeping us all busy as ever. The body is certainly feeling a little sore following each long week but thank goodness for Sundays. Our one day off.
