Laura Bartlett

24-year-old Laura Bartlett from Glasgow was one of two reserve athletes for the 2008 Olympic Games in Beijing but found herself called up to replace Jennie Bimson after three matches when Bimson was forced to out with an injury. The former Glasgow Western athlete also had to overcome her own injury troubles in the build-up to the London Olympic Games, having seriously injured her knee in a match against Germany in May 2010. The injury kept her out of Scotland’s team for the Commonwealth Games in Delhi that year but she returned with a series of outstanding performances for her country, which resulted in her being named British hockey’s Athlete of the Year for 2011. Her grandfather Ian McMillan, played football for Rangers and Scotland. Laura has a degree in Business Studies from Glasgow Caledonian University.
