Caroline Nichols is a field hockey player competing at the 2012 London Summer Olympics for the USA.

To help prepare for the 2012 Games, Nichols had LASIK eye surgery on March 5, 2012. Following the surgery, Nichols said that she thinks it will help bring her game to a new level and she is looking forward to seeing the game through a new set of eyes.

Nichols was a member of the USA Women's National Team that upset the tournament favorites and reigning world champions, Argentina, 4-2, at the 2011 Pan American Games in Guadalajara, Mexico. With the win, Team USA claimed their first ever Pan American gold medal and earns an automatic Olympic berth.

Nichols was a member of the 2008 Olympic Team in Beijing. The Americans completed the tournament having earned a win against New Zealand and draws with Argentina, Japan and Britain. The team's other loss was to defending Olympic champion Germany. The draw with Argentina, the world's No. 2-ranked team, was the highlight. It was the first time the U.S. had qualified for the Olympics since 1996, when it was given a host bid, and won its way in for the first time since the 1988 games.

Nichols graduated from Old Dominion University in 2007 with a degree in physical education. In 2006, she was a first team All-American and was named the Colonial Athletic Association Player of the Year. She first joined the USA Senior National Team in 2007, getting her first international cap against the Netherlands.

Nichols was a four-sport athlete while at Salem High School in Virginia Beach, Virginia.
She played three positions, forward, midfield, and defense as a four-year letter-winner on the field hockey team and was also second team All-District and captain of the women's soccer squad. She was a member of the cross-country and basketball teams for two seasons. Ultimately, she gave up soccer her junior year of high school to focus more completely on field hockey, Nichols told The Virginian-Pilot.

Nichols is the daughter of Ken and Terry Nichols. She has a twin brother, Christopher.

Nichols has a degree in biology with an emphasis in secondary education so teaching high school is always an option. However, her plan is to pursue becoming a Division I field hockey coach or to go back to school to become a Physician's Assistant.
