Meet Fedelia Omoghan!
I've know Feddy for a year now as we were Beaver 7s teammates for last year's Las Vegas Invitational. She's an amazing rugby talent currently playing varsity rugby in an athletic scholarship at York University in Toronto. Fedelia has a bright future ahead of her - Team Canada took notice as she was selected for the U-20 Nations Cup this summer. Canada won the tournament and she kept the bling coming as her club side, the Toronto Saracens, took the Ontario Provincial Championship! Feddy also has the best moves I've ever seen so if you spot her in Vegas feel free to take you chances in a danceoff. She can twerk like no other.
In her own words, here's Fedelia's rugby bio and what playing representational rugby means to her:
"The first time I picked up a rugby ball was in 2007, my second year of high school. Since then I haven't dropped one (metaphorically). Rugby has been a huge part of my life for 7 years now. From high school rugby I began playing club rugby with my domestic club team, the Toronto Saracens and that started me up with Provincial rugby.
I have had many opportunities to play alongside and against some of the best players in the world. In the summer of 2013 I was selected to play for the Canadian National U20 rugby team for Nations Cup. Our team won the tournament, but the best part was playing against high level competition from around the world.
This is why I have chosen to play with The Stars. Playing on an international club team with players from all over the world has helped me to become a better player. I learn new playing styles and philosophies of rugby playing alongside new people. It also provides me with an opportunity to meet new people and make new friends. I'm looking forward to the Las Vegas 7s tournament where we will be able to hit the field together for the first time and hopefully win games."
