It's been a swift rise for Kirsten Pearce, who moved back to New Zealand in 2015 after spending her formative years in Australia.
She is a hard-nosed striker who gives her complete commitment at all times whether on the attack or chasing back in defence. Kirsten has already amassed more than 50 international caps.
Rio will be Kirsten's first Olympic Games.
