Chris and Nancy look back on 2020 in this review of women’s sport in a year like no other in our lifetime. The disruption to sport caused by a global pandemic will make the year memorable for all the wrong reasons. Before the winter was out the calendar was upended and cancellations scribbled across dates around the globe from grassroots to Olympic Games. Uncertainty was wrapped in confusion and chaos walked the hallways of sport’s governance. So many questions and so few answers left athletes stranded and perplexed as gyms closed and training routines were forced to detour. The ripple effect has been far reaching across venues, organizers, sponsors and industries that supply the sports world far and wide. Yet as it became clear that there was some hope and sport would find a way to prevail, albeit singing a different tune as empty stadiums echoed a hollow sound bereft of crowds. We were concerned that there would be no competition to report on some ten months ago and yet as the year unfolded we found plenty of stories to share in women’s sport. And some would say that while the same issues facing women continue to be a constant undertone there was a glimmer of light beyond the dark clouds, and even some good news emerging from this annus horribilis.
