Sarah Thomas scored GB's third goal as they secure bronze at the London Olympics.

King’s Lynn head coach Danny Kerry saw his Great Britain women secure only the second Olympic bronze medal in their history with a 3-1 victory over New Zealand at the Riverbank Arena.

Reading striker Alex Danson opened the scoring with a penalty corner deflection in the 45th-minute to reflect the hosts’ dominance of play.

With 11 minutes remaining Leicester defender Crista Cullen flicked home a set-piece and even later Wales international Sarah Thomas diverted in another corner before Stacey Michelsen’s consolation.

The result provided some compensation after missing out on gold with Wednesday’s semi-final defeat to Argentina.

Bronze equalled the feat of the team from 1992 in Barcelona and was the minimum target prior to the London Olympics.

Who wouldn’t love the chance to go on a shopping spree. Imagine being able to walk into a shop and choose whatever your heart desires without having to worry about how much it costs.
