Crista Cullen insists she has totally recovered from her ankle injury and is ready to play her part in Team GB's quest to win Olympic gold in London.

The Boston-born Leicester Ladies defender, 26, sustained the injury at the Olympic 2012 test event in May and missed the Investec London Cup in June.

But Cullen told BBC Lincolnshire: "It was frustrating but I am back on the pitch now and in full training.

"There are no concerns. I will be fully fit come the Games."

Cullen rolled her ankle when scoring the second of her two penalty corner goals in the 2-0 win over world champions Argentina at the Olympic Park.

She added: "It was a frustrating time but you can only manage it as best you can and try to stay positive.

"We have a great medical team who supported me through the whole process so I am confident that I will be fine at the start of the Games."
