Crista’s Hockey career is a remarkable story. She describes herself as “not a natural Hockey player”, but her life story is one of extraordinary success and exceptional hard work. She is undoubtably one of the greatest players in the world game and is the ultimate role model for aspiring players.
Crista’s programme is a reflection of her own remarkable personality and life story. Each day she will inspire children to work harder and think smarter whilst creating the most powerful environment allowing all children to perform confidently outside of their comfort zone.
Crista won an Olympic Gold Medal in the Rio Games, scoring her 58th international goal in the final. She had retired after winning Bronze at the London 2012 Games however was tempted back into the squad only a year before Rio 2016. She became a pivotal player in the gold medal winning team with a crucial role as a tenacious defender and world class drag-flicker at short corners. She won a total of 185 international caps which led her to be twice selected in the Hockey Federation’s World All Star team. Crista was awarded the MBE for services to Hockey in 2016
“Winning a Gold medal in the Rio 2016 Olympic Games was a dream come true. Returning back to Sedbergh to be Lead Coach of the Hockey programme allows me to give back to the sport that gave me so much. If I can empower and inspire the young attendees to develop as people and athletes then hopefully that experience will give them the confidence to dream big.”
“I just wanted to say how much my daughter enjoyed the course, once again this year, it was both professional and fun! Christa Cullen had so much patience with them all, signing sticks and getting photos, it really meant a lot to the children.”
