Women in Sport

Today UNSW Raider and New York Wolves Gridiron athlete Kira-Lea Dargin hosted the Girls in Sport Festival at Bankwest Stadium. Kira-Lea was joined by an impressive panel of Women in Sport including Australian Rep and Roosters Captian Simaima Taufa, NSW Swifts coach Briony Akle, Australian u21 Hockey player Lexie Pickering, Cricket NSW manager Sabrina Shaideen and GWS Giants AFLW player Erin McKinnon.

The host and panel discussed athletes in male dominated sport, the importance of women in sport, the many roles on offer, obstacles they’ve each overcome and the value of team work. The ladies have certainly inspired the next generation of girls in sport!
