Quote Of The Day
“Some other sports have to do a little bit of catching up … In athletics, we’re very lucky because it’s more about the actual achievement and being the best that athletes can be. … On one occasion when I was 16 I did a road race and won. The athlete who won the men’s race won a TV – and I won a table lamp! But now it’s parity across the board in all IAAF and road race events. Yes, some fighting had to be done to get women to take part in marathon’s events. But now we have parity in our sport, we’re very lucky.”
