Midweek Reads to Keep You Going

With lockdown extended for a further two weeks, allow gsport to keep you entertained.

We have been spreading the net far and wide to profile women in sport from around the world, to give them a platform to share their stories during lockdown.

Here are a few great reads that featured on the gsport.co.za website over the past week, which may inspire you to tell your story.

Celebrating more than a decade in sports broadcasting, Thato Moeng, tells Celine Abrahams about switching from politics to sports journalism, her dream of owning a football club and how she plans to break down barriers for the next generation.

Five years on from retiring from international hockey on the gsport Awards stage, former South African women’s hockey captain, Marsha Cox, continues to play a leading role in sport. Based in the Netherlands, Cox serves on the IOC steering committee and the African hockey athlete’s committee. The hockey icon has also launched her own project to invest in the next generation.

Former gsport Awards Ministerial Awards recipient, University of Johannesburg’s Professor Cora Burnett-Louw chats to Celine Abrahams about her research projects, her passion for sport and giving women the platform to build their sporting careers.

Former badminton star, Simone Conley, talks to Celine Abrahams about working in Africa’s biggest football league, and making her mark in a man’s world.

Seasoned sports broadcaster and former gsport Woman in Radio, Cindy Poluta, is working from home for Radio 702 during the lockdown and is also focussed on growing her new business, launched shortly before the 21-Day Lockdown.

New kids on the block, Phumelela Warriors from Vrede, Free State, are eager to showcase their skills in the Sasol League after the team made it into the league in merely three years of existence.
