Kate and Helen Richardson-Walsh made sports history on Friday (19 August) when they became the first same-sex couple to win gold medals at the Summer Olympics.

The couple were part of the 19-strong Great Britain field hockey team that defeated the Netherlands 2-0 in Rio de janiero.

They were already the first same-sex married couple will compete in the Olympics.

The two have been teammates for almost two decades and became a couple at around the Beijing Olympics in 2008 and won a bronze medal together at London 2012.

They got married three years ago and the entire squad were invited to the reception.

‘We just clicked and developed a deep emotional connection,’ Kate told in July. ‘We have similar values and morals, even though we’re opposite in lots of other ways.’
