    Up to Speed with Christine Yu

    Up to Speed with Christine Yu

    Over the last 50 years, women have made extraordinary advances in athletics, accomplishing incredible feats and smashing long-held beliefs about the limits of their physical capabilities. And yet, the institutions of sport and science have largely ignored the needs of this growing population.  

     

    In UP TO SPEED: The Groundbreaking Science of Women Athletes, sports and health journalist Christine Yu disentangles myth and gender bias from real science, making the case for new approaches that can help women athletes excel at every stage of life, from adolescence to adulthood, through pregnancy, menopause, and beyond. She explains the latest research and celebrates the researchers, athletes, and advocates pushing back against the status quo and proposing better solutions to improve the active and athletic lives of women and girls. 

     

    Talking about humans and their bodies within the context of sports and science is a tricky endeavor. Both disciplines rely heavily on binary categories that often conflate sex and gender and don’t accurately describe the larger spectrum of sex or gender. Ultimately, the systemic injustices and assumptions embedded in sports and science don’t just affect women and girls. They affect all people. By examining how women and girls are marginalized and excluded, we can start to uncover ways to make these systems more equitable for everyone.

    All Quiet on the Western Front with Lesley Paterson

    All Quiet on the Western Front with Lesley Paterson

    This is a must listen to podcast that shows what true grit looks like – so very incredible. Enjoy!! 

     
    Meet is Lesley Patterson who won a BAFTA on Sunday for best adapted screenplay but the BBC cut her acceptance speech from the programme . They found time for inane interviews backstage, but not the story of how a 3 x World Champion Triathlete became a BAFTA winning scriptwriter. 

     
    Let’s start the story after her retiring as an elite sportswoman when she was asked “ What’s next “ she replied “ I am going to move half way across the world from my home here in Scotland 
    become a scriptwriter and win an Oscar . 

     
    That was more than 16 years ago when she landed in LA and set out to make a new version of the silent movie ‘ All Quiet On Thé Western Front’ .She bought the rights from the estate of the writer who wrote the best selling book that was made into an Oscar winning film. Over the course of 16 years she pitched the idea to anyone who would listen , listen they did but no one was interested in a German language film about World War 1 , without a famous actor being involved.  

     
    She used all he savings and remortgaged her house to keep her dream alive , but the dream was about to become a nightmare when she was told raise $10,000 or lose the rights to the film. She was turned down by everyone she tried to borrow from, but fate played it’s hand . There was a triathlon taking place with $10,000 prize money . 
    Exactly the amount she needed , she entered and began training. The day before the race she fell from her bike and broke her shoulder. She was down but she was not out, she strapped up , cycled, ran and swam a mile using just her legs and one arm . 
     

    She WON the race, the film as we know was made with money from Netflix, and now she has won a BAFTA and was awarded multiply Oscars! 

     
    So if you didn’t know this story, you do now!”
