GSM Live (video): Now & Then - How Sport Has Transformed

For many, it’s been approximately a year in the life of a pandemic. We’ve seen tragedy, resilience, growing gaps of opportunity and opportunities for growth, juxtaposed in communities across the globe. The world of sport was not immune.

From a pause in play, to a push for more progressive racial justice, to unanswered questions about the long-lasting impacts of COVID-19 that still linger in the air - what do we wish we knew then, that we know now?

On the next show, we welcome back guests from our Around the World: COVID-19 & Sport show one year later to discuss how they and sport have transformed in the last 12 months.
