Future of Sport: Female Trailblazers (with Reema Juffali and Hannah Rankin)
15 February 2022
In this bumper episode, JJ Shaw and Alex Kelham are joined by two trailblazers from the world of women’s sport – Hannah Rankin (reigning WBA and IBO super-welterweight world boxing champion) and Reema Juffali (Saudi Arabia’s first female professional racing driver).
Hannah and Reema discuss their experience as women in traditionally ‘male-dominated’ sports; how their respective backgrounds have influenced their careers so far; and how they aim to continue changing the attitudes towards women in sport for future generations. We explore the key step-changes required in order to elevate women’s sport when compared to men’s sport, as well as the benefits of boxing and racing on mental health.
