What an incredible summer season of sport!
A feast of football with the Euros (and England’s determined journey to the final) followed
by the Tokyo 2021 Olympic Games - a diverse display of 33 sports watched and enjoyed by
millions of people across the world.
In this article, I’d like to share the story of two athletes whose individual stories became
public knowledge during the Olympics. Simone Biles (USA gymnast) and Helen Glover
(British rower partnered with Dr Polly Swan). These women, each incredible powerhouses,
demonstrated tenacity in how they met their success, failure and challenges, and became a
catalyst for generational change in the process.
