Sport Allies – what it means to me

England Group 1 62

Sport has always been an important part of my life, both playing and spectating, and the thought of someone missing out on those experiences through exclusion doesn’t sit right with me. That’s why I think Sport Allies is such an important organisation and one that we all need to get behind. Sport has contributed so much to making me the person I am today; it has fostered many of my friendships, it has helped me develop individual as well as team work skills and has allowed me to push myself and test my limits. I don’t believe it’s right to deny anybody the chance to share in these experiences through marginalisation – although I’ve never personally witnessed or experienced homophobia in sport (I’ve been on teams with openly homosexual athletes) this is unfortunately not the norm for many others.
