Deserving Honors

Today’s second posting honours debatably, the finest female rugby player in Canadian history, Heather Moyse. Heather was inducted this week, along with many other outstanding International rugby players, into the World Rugby Hall of Fame, joining fellow Canadian, Gareth Rees. We quote a R.C. release;

Described as Canada's best female athlete, the multi-talented Moyse represented her country at rugby, cycling and bobsleigh. Heather won two gold medals in the two-woman bobsleigh at the Winter Olympics in 2010 and 2014. A devastating finisher, the winger-cum-full-back made 22 international appearances for Canada in 15s and starred in two Women's Rugby World Cups (2006 and 2010), scoring a tournament best seven tries in each. After breaking her right ankle in Canada's final game at WRWC 2010, Moyse took up cycling as part of her rehabilitation and was selected to compete for the national team at the Pan-American Track Cycling Championships in 2012. Despite not having played rugby since WRWC 2010 and undergoing surgery to her hip, Moyse then returned to her first sporting love and helped Canada to second place at Women's Rugby World Cup Sevens 2013. How about that vitae, sports fans?
