International Women’s Day Special: ‘Running Sideways’ | Pauline Davis-Thompson in conversation with Seb Coe
Season 4, Episode 7, Mar 06, 2022, 10:00 PM
To kick off World Athletics Women’s Week ahead of International Women’s Day and to #BreakTheBias by sharing the stories of inspiring women to create a bank of great role models for future generations, World Athletics President Seb Coe speaks with two-time Olympic champion Pauline Davis-Thompson about her book ‘Running Sideways’, which chronicles her inspiring journey from the ghetto to Olympic glory.
Born and raised in the poor neighbourhood of Bain Town in The Bahamas, she fought through poverty, inequality, racism and political machinations from her own country to beat the odds and become a two-time Olympic gold medallist, the first woman of colour on the World Athletics Council and an outspoken anti-doping advocate.
