Heather was forced to stop training at the University of Bath and moved back home with her parents, funding her continued training with three part-time jobs: as a swimming coach, a barmaid and a physiotherapist.
She qualified for the 2008 Beijing Olympics without funding and went on to win Silver and finish the year ranked No.1 in the World. 2009 brought more medals at the European Championships and Heather remains Britain's No.1 female Pentathlete.
"Winning an Olympic Silver medal was an amazing experience however the opportunity to do something similar in front of a home crowd is just mind blowing. I can't wait for London 2012 and I hope that you enjoy following me on my journey there."
Heather is very popular with the media and the corporate speaking circuit due to her bubbly personality and inspiring story of triumph over adversity. Her plan is to make London 2012 her swansong and fully intends to end her career on a high by winning a medal in front of her home crowd.

This is the most important season in four years for any athlete involved in an Olympic sport and it is now well underway. For me as a modern pentathlete I am currently half way through three domestic competitions. These lead to the next stage in qualifying as they will decide who is given the opportunity to compete a the first couple of world cups in the spring.
This may be our period of winter training when the mileage is upped, the weights are heavy and the hours are long but there are still plenty of competitions to keep us fresh. I personally enjoy competing and enter several events in the individual sports. On top of two full pentathlons I have run in several cross country races, fenced in three British opens and swum for Devon masters at the team regional championships. I managed to do plenty of decent training over the Christmas and New Year period and having just returned from an altitude training camp in the French Pyrenees, I am ready to take on the first World Cups of the 2012 season which I have been selected for.

Booking service was great they were very friendly
Loved the long sleeve T shirt, very good quality with an appealing design.
Very prompt and efficient at getting me up and running on my chosen I.T training programme. I very quickly made contact with my allocated tutor who provided advice and help. The course material seems quite in-depth and thorough including exam preparation questions.
It is now up to me to succeed, get a job and get a return on my investment.
Everything explained in detail. Confirmation sent by email. Answered all my questions.
Not as shure everything as it should be.
Very helpful staff,

The whole process has been really good so far. The questions I had were all answered clearly and I was set up really quickly and have already started studying. Thank you.
Materials for studies prepared professionally. Really impressive.
From the first phone call to understand the training course was very helpful and insightful, then once I started to do the training it’s very easy to use the interface they have given and so easy to do in your own time.
Helped every step of the way. Great telephone communication and email messages.
Really enjoying the course.
It went very smoothly and Tim has been very kind.
Arrived immediately after booking onto course. And so far so good. In an understandable format easy to use. And lots of advice and after sales service.
I spoke a Call Handler called Reece and when speaking with him he was very friendly and very knowledgeable about the correct information in order for me to my own choice. He was not pushy like some sales consultants are he was very easy to speak to and very relaxing. He was also very helpful in helping get to where I wanted because I came up against some barriers and these were resolved very quickly.
The Training room is the place if you want to learn a new skill or improve your skills even further, staff are brilliant and will support you all the way and all materials and resources are available online through your training account, 100% recommended.
