Dual international honours are among the distinctions of Heather Fisher, who represented Great Britain in bobsleigh from 2006-08, competing in junior championships, the British Championship and on the European circuit. She made a surprise return to bobsleigh in November 2010 as an injury replacement for GBR1 brakewoman Kelly Denyer in the Britannia Rescue British team to compete in the Americas Cup.
A sports lecturer at Warwickshire College in Henley-in-Arden, she began studies for a MSc in Strength & Conditioning in September. She also has her own personal training consultancy business as well as being a Sky Sports Athlete Mentor in the Living for Sport programme through the Youth Sports Trust.
Heather regards playing in the Amsterdam Sevens against New Zealand as her abiding rugby memory. Other representative honours span England Academy from 2001-03, the A team between 2003 and 2006 and Sevens in 2008-09 with 22 Test caps bolted on to her other achievements that include two tries against Italy at Esher in February 2011.
She missed the chance of selection for the 2010 WRWC final against New Zealand because of a hand injury but showed outstanding form in the Six Nations, her irresistible performance producing two tries in the 89-0 win over Scotland in March 2011, together with the player of the match award.
Heather has also appeared for Lichfield, spent four years with Clifton and another two with Wasps before joining Worcester in 2009-10.
