Heather Moyse is one of Canada’s great multi-sport athletes. A four-time Olympian in two-man Bobsleigh, Heather won gold at the 2010 Winter Games in Vancouver, and again at the 2014 Games in Sochi. Before she was an Olympic champion, Heather was a mainstay on Canada’s Senior Women’s Rugby Team. Heather led Canada to silver in the 2013 Rugby Sevens World Cup, and was the top try scorer in the 2006 and 2010 Women’s Rugby World Cups. In 2016, Heather became only the second Canadian, and first Canadian female, to be inducted into the World Rugby Hall of Fame. Heather represented Canada in a third international sport in 2012, when she placed Top Five in two events at the Pan-Am Track Cycling Championships in Argentina.
And in 2016, before deciding to compete for her fourth Olympic Games in 2018 at 39, Heather climbed Antarctica’s highest peak, Mount Vinson, as part of an expedition to support the members of the Canadian Armed Forces.
Heather has a master’s degree in occupational therapy, and is a highly sought-after motivational speaker. Some of her past clients include TEDx, Arbonne, Canada Post, Loblaws, Royal Canadian Mint, Fidelity Investments, the Canadian Armed Forces, CIBC, Canadian Association of Emergency Physicians, Canadian Student Leadership Conference, Trillium Automobile Dealers Association, University of Waterloo, Atlantic Women in Law Enforcement, SunLife Financial, BMW, Ontario Teachers’ Pension Plan, and has shared the stage with author and leadership guru, John C. Maxwell.
Her best-selling book Redefining ‘Realistic’ was released in 2017.
