It is really special. To win an Olympic medal is special, to win an Olympic medal with your wife standing next to you, taking the penalty in the pressure moments is so special. We will cherish this for the rest of our lives.



 

Kate and Helen recently became the first married couple to play on the same team at the Olympics and the first married couple since 1900 to win medals on the same team.
