Following agonisingly close losses to the Netherlands (5-4) and DPR Korea (3-2 OT), Function Jigsaw brand ambassador Saffron Allen and the rest of the GB Women Ice Hockey team bounced back in style to take the bronze medal at the IIHF World Championships in Korea.
The day arrived to take on hosts South Korea. A team that has had huge financial input due to their Olympic Games entry next year.
The game was always going to be tough and a repeat of a game that saw us miss out on the gold medal last year.
The contest was as expected – very fast and skilful and, after regulation time, it was all square.
We hit into overtime and despite having chances, Korea grabbed a break and saw the game home with the winning goal. A very gutting finish to a game that we had to walk away from with only one point.
