Midweek Lockdown Inspiration

by | Apr 1, 2020

Storytelling is meant to be healing and we can’t agree more. In these uncertain times, only the sixth day into the national lockdown in South Africa, we need all the inspiration.

Over the coming weeks, gsport is spreading the net far and wide to profile women in sport from around the world, to give them a platform share their stories.

Here are a few great read that featured on the gsport.co.za website over the past week, which may just nudge you in the right direction.

Championing women in sport is part of gsport’s DNA and to encourage our women to take up space, gsport Editor Kass Naidoo, blogged about the benefits of using the self-publishing option offered on our website to build your brand.

We had the privilege of speaking to Top Sports Broadcaster, Natalie Germanos, as she chatted about featuring at the recent ICC Women’s T20 World Cup in Australia and her hopes for the future of women’s sport.

The team also had the honour of profiling Sri Lankan born Australian sports events and operations specialist, Upekhah Abeykoon, after she chatted to gsport Editor, Kass Naidoo, about her journey to becoming the first woman tournament director of an ICC event.

Introducing a New Feature on gsport

As part of our lockdown coverage, we have introduced a new offering called “Keeping it Together” where we profile our athletes to see what innovative ways they are using to stay ahead of the game.

Our first video came through from Banyana Banyana striker, Thembi Kgatlana, who is currently in lockdown in Portugal and called for personal action to overcome the COVID-19 virus.

Springbok Women’s rugby captain, Babalwa Latsha, shared her 21 days nationwide lockdown personal training programme which includes using furniture around the living room to keep in shape.

Inspiring South Africa gymnast, Caitlin Rooskrantz, has also taken up a personal training and diet programme as she aims to keep on top of her game ahead of the Tokyo Olympics which have been rescheduled to July 2021.

Remember that you can be part of the fun, too, by blogging about your lockdown journey. You self-publish on the gsport website.
