Braintree: Hockey player Chloe looks forward to second Olympics
12:20pm Sunday 15th July 2012 in North Essex
Chloe Rogers has been hard at work preparing for the London Games.
The 27-year-old former Braintree Hockey Club player is counting down towards Great Britain women’s curtain-raiser against Japan on July 29.
Chloe, from Great Dunmow, knows preparation is key as she gets ready to compete at her second Olympic Games.
The 27-year-old represented Team GB at the Beijing Olympics four years ago, helping them finish sixth.
And after competing at the Investec London Cup warm-up event last month, Rogers cannot wait to play in front of even bigger crowds.
She said: “It was fantastic to play in front of crowds like that.
"It was great to see people enjoying their hockey in numbers and hopefully that will be the case at the Olympics."
