Megan Fisher didn’t slow down for long after winning one gold and one silver medal in para-cycling at the London 2012 Paralympic Games. In September of 2013, she became a world champion in two separate sports. At the 2013 UCI Para-Cycling Road World Championships in Baie-Comeau, Canada, Fisher claimed both the road race and time trial titles, and just 11 days later, she raced to victory at the International Triathlon Union Paratriathlon World Championships in London. Her outstanding cycling fitness was evident, as she recorded the fastest bike split of all TRI-5 competitors by more than three minutes.
A natural athlete, Fisher played able-bodied tennis as a freshman the University of Montana and lettered in tennis, basketball and softball in high school. She lost her foot in a car accident in 2002 shortly after finishing her freshman year at UM.
