Anne Panter is celebrating after claiming an Olympic bronze medal with the GB hockey team..

The Kettering-born former Wellingborough School girl came on as a substitute in the third/fourth place play-off win over New Zealand.

Reading striker Alex Danson opened the scoring with a penalty corner deflection in the 45th-minute which reflected the hosts’ dominance of play.

With 11 minutes remaining Leicester defender Crista Cullen flicked home a set-piece and even later Wales international Sarah Thomas diverted in another corner before Stacey Michelsen’s consolation.

The result provided some compensation after missing out on gold with Wednesday’s semi-final defeat to Argentina.

Bronze equalled the feat of the team from 1992 in Barcelona and was the minimum target prior to the Olympics..
