After embarking on a show jumping career, at secondary school I then discovered a new sport - hockey. Aged 14, I debuted for my country with a lifetime ambition to compete in an Olympic Games.
I suffered two severe injuries but undeterred, I focussed on the Sydney Olympics and my dedication paid off when I was chosen to represent Great Britain.
represented Scotland in over 200 matches and still hold the record for the most goals scored.
Since retiring in 2007, I has been involved in sports administration and currently Chair the Athletes Advisory Commission for the Commonwealth Games Federation.
