Australian Ryan Fisher is a Super League Triathlon veteran having competed in the first two SLT events including the inaugural contest on Hamilton Island. In 2019, he also won the qualifying round in Bali to grab a Golden Ticket for the Championship series.
Having grown up swimming and playing football among other sports, Fisher got stuck into triathlon after high school and was picked up by the Australian Institute for Sport and competed in the Australian Youth Olympic Festival in 2009 – a race won by a future Super League star performer Jonny Brownlee.Fisher continued to impress through the youth ranks, finishing sixth in the junior World Championship in Budapest in 2010 and starting to force his way on to the podium back home in Oceania Cup races in Devonport and Mooloolaba. An upgrade to fifth place in the Under-23 world champs in Auckland in 2012 was followed by a first World Cup win the following year in Ishigaki, Japan.
From there Fisher started to earn starts on the World Triathlon Series and against stiff domestic competition managed to secure a runners-up spot in the Australian National Championship in 2014, just being pipped in a tight finish with Aaron Royle. Another World Cup victory came in Chengdu, China in 2015 as well as earning selection to the 2016 Olympics in Rio, where he finished 24 th. Fisher became a consistent top 20 performer at the highest level throughout the next few years and finished 18 th in the Tokyo Olympics test event before the pandemic brought a swift end to racing.
Outside of triathlon Fisher also had a trial for Melbourne Demons Australian Rules Football Club, took part in the first episode of physical challenge series Australian Ninja Warrior in 2017 and has a passion for the outdoors, family and animals.
