Olympic bronze medallist Chloe Rogers has retired from international hockey after a senior career spanning nine years.

Rogers played 162 times for Great Britain and England and won nine medals including two bronze medals at the 2006 and 2010 Commonwealth Games.

The 29-year-old was part of the Great Britain women's team that took bronze at the London Olympics in 2012.

"It's been a great honour and I feel very fortunate," Rogers said.

Former Leicester midfielder Rogers stepped away from hockey following the 2012 Olympics and only returned in September 2013 with Chigwell-based Old Loughtonians.

"As much as I will always miss competing, especially in a team environment, it felt like the right time to try new adventures," Rogers added.

She now hopes to pursue a career in golf and the media.

In addition to being crowned 2004 Essex Ladies Champion, Rogers was the 2007 British Universities Women's Individual Strokeplay Champion.

"Since London 2012 I have been trying to develop a future career in media and the world of golf which has certainly been very challenging and is keeping me pretty busy," Rogers said.
