As a University of Montana student, Megan Fisher found herself fighting against devastating, life altering challenges. Luckily, she’s stubborn. Watch her full-length Under the Big Sky story and discover how Megan’s stubbornness would drive her to success.

Megan Fisher is a Paralympic gold, silver, and bronze medal cyclist from the Rio 2016 and London 2012 Games, ten-time world champion, retired member of Team USA, high altitude mountaineer, Doctor of Physical Therapy, performance coach, and motivational speaker.

Megan’s road to success has not been easy. When she was just 19 years old, Meg was involved in a tragic car accident that nearly killed her- leaving her in a coma and stealing the lower half of her left leg. A lifelong athlete, Meg has discovered that “We are all capable of more than we know.”

Prior to the car accident, Megan competed as a NCAA Division I tennis player. After the accident, Megan fought to overcome relatively simple challenges, like feeding herself, standing and walking. Incredibly, less than a year after the loss of her leg, Megan returned to college and finished her first triathlon.

That one race proved to her that she could overcome any obstacle and achieve her wildest dreams. Megan continues to explore her own physical boundaries. She uses these experiences to inspire and motivate as well as to raise awareness for organizations.
