Bing Named to U.S. Olympic Roster

Stanford's all-time leader in saves becomes the second athlete in program history to be named to an Olympic roster.

STANFORD, Calif. - Former Stanford field hockey standout Kelsey Bing has been named to Team USA ahead of the 2024 Paris Olympic Games, as announced by United States field hockey head coach David Passmore on Tuesday morning. 

Since her departure from Stanford in 2019, Bing has been a mainstay on the United States national team with 86 caps, earning four international medals throughout her career with three silver and one bronze. 

Bing recently led the United States to its first Olympic bid since 2016 with an exceptional performance that earned her Goalkeeper of the Tournament honors. Team USA finished with the silver medal at the FIH Hockey Olympic Qualifier in January, going 4-1 in the event with wins over India, Italy, New Zealand, and Japan.

The program's all-time leader in saves at 418, Bing was a three-time America East Goalkeeper of the Year (2017-19) and led the Cardinal to three America East conference championships in 2016, 2017, and 2019. 

Bing was also a two-time NFHCA All-American and four-time NFHCA All-West Region team member and finished her career within the top-30 in NCAA history in minutes played with 5,568:21. 

Bing becomes just the second athlete in program history to be named to an Olympic roster, joining Cardinal alum Nancy White in 1980. Former head coach Sheryl Johnson was also an Olympian, winning the bronze medal at the 1984 Olympic Games with the United States. 

Field hockey at the 2024 Summer Olympics in Paris is scheduled to take place from July 27 to August 9 in the historic venue, Stade Yves-du-Manoir. Team USA opens competition in Pool B play against Argentina.
