Heather Fuhr
1997 Ironman Champion


Heather Heather started running at the age of 10 and steadily improved allowing her to run on both the track and cross-country teams for the University of Alberta. She placed 5th at the Canadian Indoor Track and Field Championships in 1988 in the 1500m. Heather competed in her first triathlon in 1989 and has raced professionally since 1991. Always a top contender in major duathlons world-wide, her consecutive wins at the 95, 96 and 97 Ironman Japan prove she is also one of the best Ironman-distance triathletes out there. When Heather clocked the fastest run-split at the 1993 Ironman Hawaii, it became apparent that she had the ability to win the race, the only question was when. In 1997 on her 7th Ironman Hawaii, the same number of attempts it took Mark Allen and Greg Welch to win the race for the first time, Heather proved her promise when she beat the odds and became the 1997 Ironman World Champion.
