Teammates for Life

British field hockey players, Helen Richardson-Walsh and Kate Richardson-Walsh, are more than just teammates on the field, they’re also a married couple.  They’ve played field hockey together for nearly twenty years, been a couple for eight and finally married in 2013.  And if that weren’t enough, it gets better: the world will get to watch them work their “near telepathic magic” (as one of their coaches puts it) on the field in the Rio Olympics.

We can’t wait to cheer them on next month and the other 34 Out LGBTQI athletes heading to Rio!
