Zoe MacKinnon was a standout field hockey player at the University of Toronto, where she helped her collegiate squad win a national title in 1981, as well as a provincial one the following year. After graduating in 1983, she joined the Canadian national team and competed with them during that year’s World Cup season. Her other major international experience came at the 1984 Summer Olympics, where Canada’s record was 2-2-1, good enough for only a fifth place finish among six nations; Mackinnon participated in two of the five matches. After retiring from active competition she worked for Canada Post for many years and served as an auxiliary officer in the regional police force. She was inducted into the University of Toronto Athletics Hall of Fame in 2011 and died in January 2014 after a long struggle with cancer.
