Walker has surgery

6:34 pm on 9 November 2012

Olympic silver medallist Sarah Walker has had surgery on her damaged shoulder and will be off her bike for up to six months.

The former BMX world champion dislocated her shoulder at the World Cup in Norway in April but managed the injury throughout her Olympic campaign.

Walker's medical team believe there is a strong chance that her shoulder will dislocate again and so has been advised to have surgery.

She says now is the best time for the surgery and it'll give her at least three months on my bike before the World Championships in Auckland next July.

Three months on from London, Walker has remained busy with school visits and events resulting from the Olympics.
