The Game Changers

Sport has the power to transform people’s lives, both on and off the field and women's sport has the extra ability to knock down barriers and challenge the status quo.

The Game Changers podcast will give you the chance to sit down with some of the biggest names in women’s sport as they talk frankly about their historic careers, what drives them and how they’ve dealt with some of the toughest challenges they’ve faced.

You may be surprised at what you hear – you’ll certainly be inspired.

The Game Changers podcast: Fearless Women in Sport

Sep 1, 2020

Welcome to series five of The Game Changers, the podcast where you’ll hear from extraordinary, trailblazing women in sport.

I am thrilled to say that this series of The Game Changers will be supported by Sport England, who have done so much to tackle the inequalities women face across all areas of sport.

From the much celebrated This Girl Can campaign and initiatives that help shape school sport for girls, to schemes that encourage more female volunteers in the workforce, support female coaches and officials and ensure more women take leadership positions on the boards of our sports organisations.

My remarkable guest list for this series includes:

  • Eleanor Oldroyd – one of Britain’s most respected sports broadcasters
  • Dame Sarah Storey – The most successful female British Paralympian of all time
  • Alison Oliver – Chief Executive of the Youth Sport Trust
  • Ebony Rainford-Brent – Cricket World Cup winner and now much respected sports commentator
  • Katie Sadleir – Former Olympian, now General Manager of Women’s Rugby at World Rugby
  • Tracey Edwards MBE – Skipper of the first all-female crew in the Whitbread Round the World Yacht Race
  • Judy Murray OBE – former international tennis player and coach to many champions including her sons Jamie and Andy
  • and
    Dame Jessica Ennis-Hill – Olympic Champion and three times World Champion Heptathlete

The new series launches on Tuesday September 8, so please be sure to subscribe now, so you don’t any of the episodes.
