Five years later, Hollie then captained Great Britain to bronze at the Tokyo 2020 Olympics and showed how much it meant to her as she broke down in tears upon hearing the final whistle.

Hollie was also crowned Player of the Tournament as England secured a bronze medal at the 2017 Euros before taking over as captain of both England and Great Britain in 2018.

In 2022 she led England's women to a first Commonwealth gold in Birmingham, having also captained the side in the World Cup a few weeks earlier.

In Decemeber 2022, Hollie played in Argentina for the 4th Season of the FIH Pro League, where she became the 12th women to reach 100 GB Caps. 

Hollie captained GB as they qualified for Paris 2024.

Hollie is also a qualified accountant and works in the profession alongside her hockey career, while put on a fine show as part of the Children in Need Strictly Come Dancing special after winning gold at Rio.
