Kate Walsh Injury Update

Kate Walsh leads out Great Britain at the London 2012 Olympic Games

Kate Walsh, captain of the Team GB women’s hockey team, has this afternoon (Wednesday) been discharged from The Royal London Hospital and returned to the Olympic Village.
She returns to the Olympic Village and the company of her teammates following a successful operation on her fractured mandible (jaw), sustained during Great Britain’s 4-0 victory over Japan on Sunday.

Kate is relaxed and comfortable and recovering from the surgery. Her recovery will continue to be monitored by Team GB medical staff. No timescale will be placed on any possible return to action.

Kate has been overwhelmed by the messages of support she has received from the British public, friends, family and teammates and wishes to thank everyone for those.  She would also like to thank the staff of the Royal London Hospital who have cared for her since Sunday.
