Heather McKay AM MBE is an iconic figure when it comes to squash in Australia. McKay is considered one of the greatest female sportswomen to have ever lived, and only lost two matches in her entire career, spanning nearly two decades.
On Australia Day this year, McKay was recognised once again for her achievements on the sporting field, receiving the honour of Officer (AO). The award was for “distinguished service to squash as an elite player and coach, as a pioneer on the professional circuit, and through support for young athletes” (Source: Australia Day 2018 Honours List). This latest honour will accompany her Order of British Empire (MBE) and the Order of Australia (AM) received in 1969 and 1979, respectively.
