Team England women's rugby sevens secured the bronze medal at the Commonwealth Games at Gold Coast in Australia after they beat Canada 24-19.
England dominated possession in their final and ran in four tries to secure third place in the first time women's sevens has been included at the games.
In a tight semi-final before that, New Zealand pulled away in the second half as they secured a 26-5 victory to face Australia in the gold medal match.
In the pool matches, England beat Fiji 17-5 in their opening fixture but lost 12-29 to the Aussies following three second half tries at Robina Stadium. However, they responded on day two with a 45-0 win over Wales.
In the bronze final, England dominated possession in the opening exchanges and were rewarded following a Canada sin bin as Lydia Thompson stepped through the defence to score.
Deborah Fleming's fourth try of the tournament got England's second before she turned provider for Claire Allan to score.
Following a Canada try just before half-time, Jess Breach's first score in Australia restored the three-try advantage.
Two quickfire Canada tries then made for a tense finish but England held on to secure the bronze medal in Australia.
Abbie Brown: "To come out here and get a medal is just an amazing feeling.
"Canada are a great team and we knew they were going to bring us something and that is good for us as it tested us.
"It doesn't take a genius to work out this is the start of something special and I'm so proud of all of the girls as they gave 100% out there and I couldn't have asked for more."
Against one of the favourites for this competition in the semi-final, England went down early on to the Black Ferns when Sarah Goss broke the line.
Some neat handling work by Emily Scarratt and Megan Jones eventually saw Abbie Brown level the game for England, before some stunning defensive work by Lydia Thompson kept out Portia Woodman.
However, the Kiwis were ahead again when Michaela Blyde crossed and then they had to put in a big defensive effort to keep out wave after wave of England pressure on their line.
Shakira Baker and Woodman did go over in the final few minutes to confirm the win as they progressed to the final.
England were over in the first minute of their first game on day one against Fiji as Deborah Fleming went over, with Emily Scarratt and Lydia Thompson adding scores in the 17-5 win.
Against Australia, the game was finely poised at 12-12 at half-time as captain Abbie Brown and Fleming went over but the hosts, who would go on to progress to the final, pulled away in the second half of the game.
Knowing a win against Wales would secure their semi-final spot, England were ahead after 40 seconds through Fleming's third of the tournament.
Natasha Hunt's two tries and one each for Scarratt, Emily Scott and Amy Wilson Hardy saw England reach 45 points and set up the last four game against New Zealand.
