Athlete Biography

Tim Deavin will make his second Olympic appearance at Rio as he takes over 125 international caps worth of experience into the Games.

The Tasmanian born athlete took up hockey at nine years of age and his career was almost ended prematurely in 1999 when he suffered a depressed skull fracture.

The midfielder made his international debut in 2010 at the Azlan Shah Cup winning gold before going on to be part of the successful team that won the 2010 Champions Trophy.

Known as “Deavo”, he was part of the Australian team that won gold at the 2011 Champions Trophy in Auckland. The historic win was the fourth consecutive win for the Kookaburras, the first team to have achieved this in history. A foot injury nearly ended Deavin’s Olympic debut, but he recovered to have a great start to 2012 competing in a string of Kookaburras international matches and cementing his spot on the side.

Selected for all international tournaments in 2015, the defender also represented the Ranchi Rays in this year’s Coal Hockey India League where they lost their 2015 crown to the Jaypee Punjab Warriors. Off the field, Deavin divides his time between hockey and being the owner/director of hockey equipment companies Lycan Sports and The Hockey Shop. Deavin also has completed a Bachelor’s degree in computer science and Cert IV in business management.
