UKA - IWD 2022

Whilst 8 March is the recognised date for International Women’s Day, UK Athletics spent the entire week celebrating some key figures within the sport working hard and deserving of wider recognition.

Former athletes Laura Turner-Alleyne, Kate Rooney and Wendy Sly, current long jumper Jazmin Sawyers and UKA’s Paralympic Pathway manager Sarah Benson all contributed to the series celebrating their work and efforts in an enlightening Q&A series.

As well as asking the women their experience of bias within the sport they all spoke how they work towards ‘breaking the bias’ – the theme of IWD 2022.
