The Sportist is a group of people, both ladies and gents, who feel women’s sports is getting a raw deal. From a complete lack of coverage in the press to lessening government and sponsorship support, ladies sport almost always plays second to their male counterparts despite the gruelling hours of training, dedication and drive taken for each athlete to be the best. Women train just as hard, for just as long and with the same level of dedication as male athletes, yet rarely scrape the back pages of any newspaper’s sports section.
So we here at The Sportist have had enough. Here is our chance to promote women’s sports, champion female athletes and discuss some of the issues surrounding ladies and the beautiful game(s)!
