Megan Fletcher



Megan is only the second Irish women to represent Ireland in Olympic judo after Lisa Kearney (2012). This June she fought for a bronze medal at the World Championships in Hungary, the highest level ever by an Irish judoka. Her mother Alma is from Bruff, Co Limerick and Meg first competed for Ireland in 2017, winning a bronze medal at the European Open in Belgrade. She had previously won bronze at the European Cadet Championship in 2005. In 2019 she made the podium at the Marrakech, Tel Aviv and Montreal Grand Prix and was seventh at the European Games in Minsk. She usually trains at Bath University but Covid forced her to train, with her brother, at their home club in Wokingham, west of London and at the Sports Institute of Northern Ireland. Megan took a break from teaching geography in the past few years to train fulltime for Tokyo.
