BBC Sport - Rio Olympics beckon for Ireland women's hockey team

Olympics beckon for Ireland hockey

Megan Frazer says the Ireland hockey team won't "shy away" from the challenge of pulling off an historic victory against China on Thursday.

The women are one win away from effectively booking their place at next year's Olympic Games in Rio after a shock 2-0 win over USA helped them top Pool B and reach the quarter-finals of World League 3 in Valencia.

Ireland have never qualified for an Olympic Games in either men's or women's hockey.
