Boston hockey internationals Hannah Macleod and Crista Cullen will begin their quest for Olympic gold on Sunday.

The duo - both born in the town - will join fellow Lincolnshire squad members Shona McCallin and Georgie Twigg in action at Rio 2016.

Team GB will begin their Pool B contests against Australia on Sunday, beginning at 12.30am.

This will be followed by Monday’s contest against India (10pm).

Next Wednesday they will face Argentina at 5.30pm, before taking on Japan on Friday, August 12 with a 12.30am push back.

Their Pool B contests will conclude by facing the USA on Saturday, August 13, starting at 10pm.

The top four teams from both of the two pools will then qualify to compete in the knockout stages of the competition.

Cullen, Macleod and Twigg were all part of the squad which won bronze at London 2012, now they and McCallin are hoping to go further this time and reach the final.
