Great Britain's women's team finished fifth in the final Champions Trophy in Changzhou, China.

Britain qualified as Olympic champions and played hosts China, defending champions Argentina, 2018 World Cup winners the Netherlands, Oceania champions Australia and Asian Games champions Japan.

They have been rebuilding since the last Olympics but were using this event as a marker to see how far they have come as they prepare to defend their title in Tokyo in 2020.

After finishing bottom of the group without a win, they managed to beat Japan 2-1 on finals day.

World champions Netherlands won the tournament, claiming a 5-1 victory over Australia in the final, while Argentina beat China 6-0 in the bronze-medal match.

The tournament will be replaced by the inaugural FIH Pro-League, which will take place across the globe between January and June in 2019.
