Fresh from her success at the Rio Olympic Games, Karen Brown, GB Women’s Hockey Assistant Coach, will be sharing her experience of being part of the only GB team to come away with Gold at this years Olympic Games.
2016 has been one hell of a year for Karen Brown. In January, she was named as the Female Coach of the Year by the FIH (Fédération Internationale de Hockey) for her phenomenal achievements since her coaching career began. Follow that 8 months later with her Team GB winning Olympic Gold in Rio and I think you can safely say she is one very happy coach!
Karen is Great Britain’s most capped female international player, amassing 355 caps in a storied and successful international career. She competed in three Olympic Games collecting a bronze medal in 1992 to add to a European Gold (1991) a Commonwealth Games silver and of course numerous medals in her club career with Slough, UK.
She began her coaching journey at Chelmsford back in 2000 leading them to a European Cup Winners Cup silver medal and the national indoor title. She has worked with the England U16, U18 and U21 and B programmes. She was Head Coach of the England U21 women’s team at the Junior World Cup in Chile in 2005 and joined England Hockey that same year as Junior Performance Manager, moving to Assistant Coach working alongside Danny Kerry in 2006.
Since then, she has been part of the coaching team that has led England to medals at the World Cup, Champions Trophy, Commonwealth Games and European Championships. With Great Britain, she coached the side that finished sixth at the Beijing Olympic Games, a bronze medal at London 2012 and of course the Gold medal at Rio 2016.
