On our weekly news magazine show Chris Stafford is joined by Nancy Gillen from Inside the Games who has the top stories from around the world of women’s sport. Earlier this week, Chris spoke to US Bobsled's three-time Olympian - the only woman to win back to back gold medals and a three-time World Champion, Kaillie Humphries who had just completed the US National Trials and made the squad for the 2022 Olympic Games. She is now in the process of making the cut to compete at next year's World Championships and the 2022 Olympics in Beijing. If you’ve been following the sport, you will know that prior to the 2018-19 season, Kaillie bravely came forward about the harassment she faced from the governing body of professional Canadian bobsledding. She filed a lawsuit to be released from Canada’s national team in September, 2019 and joined Team USA. Like many female athletes in recent years, Kaillie risked her career to stand up publicly against a sports’ governing body. As one of Canada’s most decorated athletes of all time, she made the difficult personal and professional choice to leave her home country.
