Women and Sport in 2016

Last month I found myself in New York City attending the 2016 version of Advertising Week.
Similar to Team Canada, female athletes led Team USA in Rio this year in medal count. However, there still so much gender disparity in sports.

Rio 2016 Olympic Moment: Nikki Hamblin and Abbey D’Agostino

Everyone loves the Olympics. Even the harshest critics among us can find a feel good human story once in a while. As we all experience the Olympics I’ll attempt to share a favourite moment.

Nikki Hamblin and Abbey D’Agostino are both middle distance runners competing in Brazil this summer. During their 5000 metre qualifying race Nikki and Abbey collided with Abbey bearing the brunt of the collision. What followed was what we all hope for (deep down at least). They showed what we like to call “Olympic spirit”.
