Women’s Sport Week: Tanni Grey-Thompson on the power of sport

To launch Women’s Sport Week, Britain’s greatest Paralympic athlete Tanni Grey-Thompson talks about the power sport has to improve the lives of women across the world.

Speaking to BBC Sport’s Elizabeth Hudson, Tanni explains that her biggest worry is “how few young girls are being active as a starting point to getting into sport…Unless you have more people being active, you won’t make that stepping stone into being sporty.”

“We need to break the cycle and change PE in schools and give more priority to that”, Tanni argues. This will “get people thinking about what they do outside and make sure sport is for everyone.”

She goes on to say that “It’s all about helping women be fitter, stronger and healthier so they feel stronger in themselves and in making their own decisions…Overall, it teaches you a lot of lessons about not giving up and fighting for what you want.”
