Description

This story starts with Great Britain women's hockey team's dismal failure to qualify for the 2004 Olympics and culminates in a gripping match in Rio 12 years later. The stunning gold medal victory at the 2016 Olympics was described as "the moment of the Games" and The History Makers charts the turbulent journey of a team that rewrote its own destiny.
