CONCEPT Vehicle Leasing is celebrating Georgie Twigg’s Olympic selection – being picked for Team GB’s hockey team in the Rio Olympics 2016.
Surbiton Hockey Club member Georgie will join Team GB women’s hockey team to represent her country and strive for the gold medal she has yearned for since the 2012 London Olympics, where the women’s hockey team triumphantly bought home a bronze medal.
She reacted to the news by saying she was: “Absolutely over the moon and so excited! Thank you all so much for your support, an exciting couple of months ahead!”
Georgie has been training hard over the past few months in preparation of the fast approaching Olympics. The Team GB women’s hockey squad will head out to Rio ten days before the Olympics.

She said: “We have the same surface here as out in Rio so we are continuing to train here at Bisham Abbey before heading out. I really am so appreciative to the fantastic support from Concept Vehicle Leasing and Surrey Independent Advisors that enables me to get to and from training every day.”
Concept Vehicle Leasing and Surrey Independent Advisors – two local businesses in Surbiton, have sponsored Georgie with a BMW 1 Series so she can get to and from training every day.
“We recently competed against the top 6 teams in the world at the Hockey Champions Trophy here in London. The tournament did not go as we would have hoped but we have stayed strong as a squad and have learnt lots. It has made us even hungrier to do well out in Rio.”
