In this special Series 3 FINALE, we look forward to the rescheduled Tokyo 2020 Olympics in less than a month.
We speak to two current Olympic gold medalists; GB Hockey player Lily Owsley and GB Track Cyclist Elinor Barker, as well as our own Jess Piasecki who has been selected for Team GB in the marathon. We also catch up with our other co-host Dr Georgie Bruinvels about her work with female athletes in the build up to the Games.
In our discussions we cover why tracking the menstrual cycle has been a GAME CHANGER for both Lily and Elinor, why you might be less coordinated as you approach your period and why role models are so important to inspire women to get involved in sport, plus how the Olympics and sportswomen in particular can help provide these.
