I met Team GB's Nicola White in my local gym

Tuesday night: standard gym session at Oldham Sports Centre, only I recognise someone doing kettlebell swings at the back of the room. It's only Oldham's Nicola White, Olympic gold medallist from Oldham!

She was kind enough to stop for a picture. 

She told me she was living in London these days, but was back in Oldham seeing family. Being an Olympic athlete, she explained, she can use council gyms across the country for free. Her mum, working out with her, took the picture.

I mentioned how I was on the edge of my seat in the hockey final against the Netherlands. That penalty shoot-out was intense. Check out Ms White's equalising goal halfway into the match. Bosh!
