Heather Fisher knows exactly what it takes to overcome adversity and conquer all in front of her.
She may suffer from severe alopecia but Heather has won the World Cup in the 15-a-side format in 2014 and represented Team GB in the Rio 2016 Olympic Games.
Adding to her rugby excellence, the hooker has also turned out for Great Britain in bobsleigh, competing in Junior Championships, the British Championship and on the European circuit.
Educated at Kington School, Warwickshire College, Bath College and University of Wales Institute, Cardiff, she is now studying for a Masters in Strength & Conditioning at the University of Gloucestershire.
Heather, who is from Birmingham, has worked on behalf of the Youth Sport Trust as a Sky Sports Athlete Mentor as well as being involved with Cheadle Hulme School as their athlete mentor, looking after the scholarship programme.
Despite a strong trophy cabinet, Heather describes her proudest moment as winning her first England cap against the USA in 2009.
World Cup glory followed in 2014 and Heather was also part of the England Sevens side that took part in the World Cup Sevens of 2009 and 2013.
Heather was a mainstay for the HSBC World Rugby Women’s Sevens Series in 2018 and was also called-up for the World Cup Sevens in San Francisco in July 2018.
