Erica Roe, (born 1957), also known as the Twickenham Streaker, is remembered for a topless run across the pitch of Twickenham Stadium during an England vs. Australia rugby union match on 2 January 1982. It has been described by the BBC as “[p]erhaps the most famous of all streaks“. Roe, who later claimed to have been inspired by alcohol, ran onto the field during half time, exposing her 40-inch chest. Roe and the friend who joined her streak were corralled by police officers on the field, one of whom covered Roe’s chest with his helmet while leading her off the field.
While Roe was not the first or the last streaker at an athletic event, in 2007 The Independent of London declared that her “memorable” streak made her a suitable icon to represent all such streakers in their article on sports interruptions. The event prompted Manchester Confidential to dub her “the most famous British streaker”.
