Training through injury, body shaming and delayed puberty were just some of the challenges that faced retired gymnast Stephanie Moorhouse throughout her career from the age of 4 to 18. At the height of her career, Steph would train up to 40 hours per week which saw her win a gold medal at the 2002 Commonwealth Games, a bronze medal at the 2003 World Championships and compete at the 2004 Athens Olympics. Steph joins host Sam Squiers to discuss the demands on young gymnasts who peak in their teen years, transitioning to life after elite sport and her response to the Australian Human Rights Commission report into gymnastics which revealed a culture of abuse, misconduct and bullying.
President of the Richmond Football Club, Peggy O’Neal, wants support for women and girls to pursue careers in sport, on and off the field.
Peggy became a Richmond Football Club member after moving to the suburb from the USA and developing a love for the sport and the Club. She’s progressed from being a member, to sitting on the Richmond board, to becoming the AFL’s first female president. In that time, she’s seen the establishment of Richmond’s AFLW side and the men’s first premiership win in 37 years.
Peggy joins Sam Squiers to discuss the growth of the AFLW, creating pathways for other women to take on leadership positions in sport, and how it felt to see the Tigers win a premiership in 2017 after a 37-year drought (and two more premierships since then).
CEO of Netball Victoria and Melbourne Vixens, Rosie King OAM wants to see the Suncorp Super Netball competition expand and provide more opportunities for elite netballers.
Rosie has held leadership roles in some of Australia and New Zealand’s largest companies, but it’s Netball Victoria where she’s been able to have the greatest impact on women’s sport.
Rosie joins Sam Squiers to discuss getting her first taste of CEO leadership at the Geelong Football Club, changing misconceptions about netball and what needs to happen for the Super Netball competition to grow.
