Methods would like to congratulate all the British athletes who took part in the Rio 2016 Olympics, bringing home a record number of medals, and demonstrating that GB is still very much a sporting powerhouse – we should be very proud. We salute the hard work and dedication of the athletes and coaches. Rio has shown that we as a country are able to perform at the highest level across a very wide range of sports.

We would like, in particular, to congratulate the Women’s GB Hockey Team who showed how team spirit and determination are very important components in success.

Against the odds playing a very capable Dutch team, the GB team prevailed in a thrilling final in no small part thanks to Maddie Hinch. We support Maddie’s elevation to national heroine, and wonder if she might be available for a national men’s football side? The Women’s team have demonstrated how a team can attain the highest levels of achievement with a vision and belief in their own abilities.

Methods Group is a sponsor of Amersham & Chalfont Hockey Club, and will be taking a role in supporting the building of a new pitch and club facilities this Autumn.
