The 22-year-old posted a photo on Twitter of her enjoying some well deserved time off over the festive period, fishing with her dad, Fred. "Christmas Eve fishing with dad ... He caught 4 ... I caught 0 #loser", Flanagan tweeted. Given that everything Flanagan has touched this year has turned to gold, you'd expect the fish to jump out of the water and straight onto the line. Flanagan was a part of the Hockeyroos side that won gold at the Commonwealth Games in Glasgow before losing to Argentina in the final of the Champions Trophy. She was also shortlisted as the International Female Rising Star of the Year at the International Hockey Federation awards.
