MK personal trainer Lauren Thomas was part of the victorious Buckingham Ladies team who became National Indoor Hockey champions live on BBC TV.
Lauren, who works at David Lloyd Club MK, played a key role in defence as her unfancied team stormed through the rounds to claim a shock 4-3 win in the final of their first national tournament.
Lauren and her Buckingham team-mates will now go on to represent England in Europe. She said: “We were a team of nobodies united by a desire to work hard for each other to make history. I couldn’t be more proud.”
