Waterman said in the documentary: “When HSBC first asked me if they could share my story in a documentary, I never imagined that they would invest so much time and energy in creating something so awesome. It was quite emotional watching the final edit for the first time and although it was a little overwhelming, it has been a real privilege to tell my story and be open about the highs and lows I have experienced along the way.

“When people ask what should be done to improve the opportunities for women in sport, for me it’s things like this documentary.  It provides the opportunity to help bust myths and begin to change the narrative of what is possible.”

Waterman played for Great Britain in the Rio Olympics falling short in the early stages to New Zealand and battling it out against Canada in the battle for Bronze. New Zealand would later play in the grueling finals against Australia, falling short and finishing with silver as Australia took home the first ever Olympic gold medal.
