Cherry on top: Emilee recommits to sevens ahead of the Tokyo Olympics

I certainly plan to, Hugh! Watch this space.

Hugh, honestly. I was in absolute awe. To hear about how hard she worked to return to elite sport in just eight months absolutely floored me.

Rugby AU do cop a lot of flack, but I couldn’t agree more – when it comes to Sevens, it is absolutely a world leading program.

Brett, I hear that they are absolutely the pride of Canberra. It’s so good to see the team have so much support.

Marianna Tolo and the Capitals pushing for historic three-peat

Great shout!

Mick, that makes my day. Thank you so much! I hope your daughter is enjoying the competition as much as I am!!

Glad you are enjoying them as much as I am!

Meet Tegan McPharlin, the Strikers' introverted wicketkeeper

Thank you Scott! I’m just getting started!
I can’t wait to watch Bec either, what an incredible couple of years she has had!

The WNBL season is an opportunity for Rebecca Cole

Wasn’t that special, Mick!

Ferling good! Holly confident the Stars can snare a WBBL top-four finish

I did ask her about this Dave! Chloe said she was worried about getting split in half.

It was an absolute pleasure Gillian. Your daughter is a talent and an absolute delight!

New winter training facility is a game changer for Abbey Willcox

Dave, does that include Lauren and Mahalia? Who am I missing? ????

Sharni Williams recommits to sevens ahead of Tokyo Olympics

That’s right, James. Given the 7s women do not have any games at the moment, it is a great opportunity to get some game time, meet some incredible women and potentially learn some new skills.

I am loving seeing them play in the NRLW too. All three killed it last weekend!

Thank both for your support. I’ve been doing as much coverage of women’s sport this year as possible, but they do tend to have less engagement. I also wonder whether because this is a ‘feel good’ story, it may get less comments? When I write opinion pieces on more divisive topics, they are the ones that tend to go viral.

Absolute superstars!

They sure can! Rugby league is just borrowing them for a little while.

Oh my goodness, Stu, YOU WERE THERE? Did you get tickets randomly in the ballet? Oh what a wonderful memory and glad it is still such a fond sporting memory for you.

On this day: The Aussie Stingers win gold at the Sydney Olympics

Thanks Paul! I hope she gets a chance to show us what she can do – she had such a brilliant WBBL last year and hopefully that good form continues.

Belinda Vakarewa rewarded with return to Aussie squad

Insidious content? Wow.

Melissa King hopes to leave a legacy through the FIBA Women's World Cup

Landcruiser, I’m confused? It would be good to understand why you think this is a political article?

Melissa King has just been appointed CEO of the LOC for the FIBA Women’s Basketball World Cup and I was interested in hearing her vision for the event.

My pleasure, James! I also had the chance to speak to Jemima Montag last week and she is another incredible athlete.

I can’t wait to (fingers crossed) cheer them both on at Tokyo!

An Australian record and getting engaged all part of a big year for Jessica Hull

Thanks Josh!

What I found really interesting was that at Rio, mixed gender became compulsory in the open sailing category. In most mixed teams, the male looks after the physical side of it and the female looks after tactics. Lisa and Josh actually do it the other way round which I found very inspiring.
