Rechelle Margaret Hawkes, OAM[1] (born 30 May 1967 in Albany, Western Australia) was the captain of the Australian Women’s Hockey Team, best known as the Hockeyroos, for eight years and is one of only two Australian women to win three Olympic gold medals at three separate Olympic Games: Seoul 1988, Atlanta 1996 and Sydney 2000.

Hawkes also competed at the 1992 Summer Olympics in Barcelona, where Australia finished fifth. She made her debut in 1985, and reached a milestone in 1999, when the midfield player celebrated 250 games for the national team. She read the Athlete's Olympic Oath at the Sydney 2000 Olympic Games.

She received a Medal of the Order of Australia in 1989,[1] an Australian Sports Medal in 2000, an Australian Sports Medal in 2000,[2] and a Centenary Medal in 2001.[3] In 2001, she was inducted into the Australian Institute of Sport 'Best of the Best'.[4] She was inducted into the Sport Australia Hall of Fame in 2002.[5]

Hawkes is currently Assistant Coach to the Victoria Park Xavier Hockey Club's women's first side (for season 2010).
