On a day that Birmingham 2022 announced it will make history by becoming the first global multi-sport event to award more medals to women than men, we hosted a series of live discussions about the past, present and future of women’s sport (find out more about the Sports at the Games).
One of the three live broadcasts was ‘It’s Our Time’, which featured athletes who are hoping to star at Birmingham 2022, including Eboni Usuro-Brown (Netball) and Sarah Davies (Weightlifting).
With Birmingham 2022 also set to host the most comprehensive para sport programme in Games history, the panel also featured the thoughts of para athletes whose events will be contested for the first time. They included swimmer Maisie Summers-Newton, Basketball 3×3 star, Siobhan Fitzpatrick, and Paralympic and World T34 Sprint Champion, Hannah Cockroft, who shared her excitement about representing Team England.
We’ve condensed the best bits from ‘It’s Our Time’ into this 90-second highlights package.
