Abi Walker

Reserve goalkeeper for the London 2012 Olympic Games, Scotland’s Abi Walker combines a career as an international hockey player with one as a surgeon at St George’s Hospital in London. She attended High School of Glasgow and graduated in medicine from the University of Glasgow in 2006. One of a family of six medics, she passed the Member of the Royal College of Surgeons exam with one hand after breaking the other the previous evening at hockey training. The former Glasgow Western goalkeeper now plays for Canterbury in the Investec Women’s Hockey League.
