Danny Kerry

Danny Kerry (1970) is an international hockey coach from England. At the London Games in 2012 he coached the GB women to bronze. He followed that up in Rio 2016 with a spectacular gold medal for the GB women. At the Tokyo Games he finished his tenure with the GB men on a 5th place. A seasoned coach at the highest level, with an amazing track record at several Olympic Games and World Cup tournaments. So we were very happy when he agreed to #sharetheknowledge at The Hockey Site.
