Excitement continues to mount as the #gsport15 Team grows leading up to the 2020 Momentum gsport Awards on Monday, 31 August 2020, as we unveil our Writer’s Block who have taken up the challenge to champion this year’s finalists.

2019 Momentum gsport Awards Woman in PR and Sponsorship winner, Marisa Calvert, who is part of the 5 writers, is eager to get the ball rolling and amplify her writing skills.

“I’m so excited about this incredible opportunity to be part of the gsport15 Writer’s Block team,” she said.

“Writing has always been a huge passion of mine and as my career advanced, writing took a bit of a back burner.

“During lockdown, I’ve been trying my hand at writing short movie scripts and plots (which I won’t ever publish) and realized how much I love writing,” Calvert explained.

“And now I have been given the opportunity to not only tell the beautiful and inspiring stories of our young sports stars and trailblazers, but I also get to engage with them and really learn about their career paths. Thank you gsport!”

“I’m really excited about joining the Writer’s Block team and profiling other women in sport. Industry acknowledgment is important, and I’m happy to be part of that mission.” – Accomplished eNCA Sport Reporter and Brand South Africa Woman in Television winner at the 2019 Momentum gsport Awards, Hloni Mtimkulu.

Accomplished eNCA Sport Reporter and Brand South Africa Woman in Television winner at the 2019 Momentum gsport Awards, Hloni Mtimkulu, is ecstatic to be part of gsport’s mission to acknowledge women in sport.

“After seeing how the gsport process works, the recognition it creates for women in sport, I’m really excited about joining the Writer’s Block team and profiling other women in sport. Industry acknowledgment is important, and I’m happy to be part of that mission.”

Columnist Natalie Le Clue is looking forward to joining in on the mission to continue telling the untold women’s sport stories.

“I am tremendously chuffed to form part of the #gsport15 Writer’s Block team. Even more so I am delighted to have the ability to contribute in the fight for equality for women’s sport.”

“For me it’s not only a chance to get to know more about the amazing women who are blazing a trail in their respect fields but it’s also a chance to also grow myself as a journalist.” – Journalist Tholakele Mnganga.

The Writer’s Block also affords journalists the opportunity to grow their careers.

“For me it’s not only a chance to get to know more about the amazing women who are blazing a trail in their respect fields but it’s also a chance to also grow myself as a journalist,” Tholakele Mnganga pointed out.

“This is a such a wonderful initiative in that it finally breaks down the access to individuals involved in sport because unfortunately it’s hard to get in touch with certain individuals.

“I like the fact that it means I get to discover other female writers who I may have never heard of.”

Kimara Singh, who has written for University of Johannesburg, is also a rising sport journalist who is hoping to use this opportunity to champion women in sport.

“I am extremely happy to be joining the gsport Writer’s Block team this year, I would just like to thank Kass and the gsport team for this opportunity! I can’t wait to champion more women in sport through my writing ❤️,” Singh concluded.
