Helen Richardson-Walsh (née Richardson, born 1981) is an Olympic hockey player.

She was born in Hitchin, Hertfordshire. She represented her country many times, including the London 2012 Olympic Games.

In 2013 she had a civil partnership with fellow hockey player Kate Walsh and both changed their last name to Richardson-Walsh.[1] The couple were listed at number 82 in the Pink List 2013. The citation said:

"Just over a year after they helped Great Britain win its first Olympic women’s hockey medal in 20 years, team captain Kate Walsh and midfielder Helen Richardson got married in September. Maidenhead-based Richardson is studying psychology and Walsh was voted onto the European Athletes’ Commission earlier this month."[2]
