To mark the Olympics that would have been taking place in Tokyo right now we have joined up with the sponsors of our Olympics Coverage on Sport for Business Indeed, to bring to life a series of interviews with those who would have played a part in Team Ireland’s participation.
Over the time we should have been enthralled by their exploits we will meet the athletes, the officials, the support teams and others who would have played their part in the Olympic story of 2020 and will do so again in 2021.
In the latest interview this morning, we meet Róisín Upton who played a key part in the Irish Women’s Hockey team making it to the Olympics playing most of the second leg qualifier against Canada with a broken wrist.
Thankfully there were no injuries as we spoke about her career on hold starting out as a teacher, what it was like playing in front of a big crowd on home soil and much more.
Róisín is also a brand ambassador for Circle K and its ‘Here for Ireland’ campaign
