A NEWLY-CROWNED Olympic cham­pion showed off her gold medal at East­cote Hockey Club’s an­nual fes­ti­val.

Shona McCallin help Team GB’s women se­cure gold in Rio last month as the Brits over­came Hol­land to claim a stun­ning vic­tory.

McCallin dropped in over the week­end to in­spire the East­cote mem­bers as Deputy Mayor of Hilling­don, Cllr Carol Melvin, opened the club’s new as­tro­turf pitch.

East­cote ladies warmed up for the new sea­son by beat­ing Wan­der­ers 2-0 in a friendly, while the men played out a pul­sat­ing 2-2 draw with Wap­ping sec­onds.
