Allison FisherAllison Fisher won her first World Snooker Championship when she was 17 years old, but her love of the game was ignited 10 years prior to that by the matches she watched o­n TV. By the time she was13 she belonged to a league and at 15 she won her first national championship, which she gives much credit to the coaching of Frank Callen.
