Feature Articles

gsport  … for Girls! is about more than sport. It’s a resource aimed at encouraging women to reach our full potential.

Every month, we will tackle a host of topics that will help us get into the best shape possible, physically, mentally and emotionally…

So much to talk about, let’s get it on!

August Lead Feature: Penny Heyns
Well-known sports journalist Karien Jonckheere interviews Penny Heyns, and searches for clues about a woman who has attained mythical status as one of the world’s best-ever swimmers.

Lifestyle Feature: Celebrating Femininity!
gsport … for Girls! partner Kass Naidoo talks about a favourite topic, an appropriate attitude to celebrating womanhood.  

Wellness: Awakening Your Inner Motivation Michele Wolhuter introduces a refreshing way of approaching personal motivation, one of the key factors in achieving progress.

Leading Ladies

The Leading Ladies of gsport generally portray two fundamental characteristics, they are hardworking, and they are well-known.

This makes them just one step away from the rest of us hardworking girls, and the reason we feature them, is so that we can all learn some tips from them.

From day 1, gsport is proud to reveal its glittering array of August leading ladies, including national hockey sensation Marsha Marescia, popular morning TV personality Leanne Manas, our very own Kass Naidoo, and (keeping the best for last), talented breakfast radio host, Pabi Moloi!
