Women’s Sport Podcast

The Telegraph Women’s Sport Podcast gives a voice to women’s sport and women in sport. Hosted by Olympic hockey gold medallist Sam Quek, it covers a variety of issues impacting women in sport through interviews with trailblazing female sporting figures.

The six-part series, sponsored by Mastercard, features episodes themed around the topics of activism, ACLs, motherhood, success, periods and coaching.

“I love hosting these podcasts,” says Quek. “Although I’ve experienced everything we talk about in the different episodes at some point in my career, hearing about so many other people’s perspectives is fascinating, inspiring and warming. I’m learning so much.”

The series launched with former Lioness Ellen White, Rugby World Cup winner Maggie Alphonsi and sport psychologist Helen Davis discussing success, mindset and dealing with pressure.

Other guests across the series include Alice Dearing, the first black female swimmer to represent GB at the Olympics; Ali Donnelly, CEO of More Than Equal, which aims to find the first female F1 world champion; Fiona Pocock, former England rugby player; and Hannah Mills, the most decorated female Olympic sailor.

Sarah Mockford, Telegraph Women’s Sports Editor, said: “Appreciation of women’s sport is on the rise and we want to celebrate those across that space, from Olympic champions to grass-roots coaches. This podcast gives women in sport a platform to discuss their successes as well as the major issues that are still being faced.”
