In honour of International Womens Day we have compiled our favourite moments from womens sport, proving once and for all that #ThisGirlCan.

Participation and interest in female sport are on the rise, global stars like Venus Williams, Alex Morgan and Jessica Ennis are inspiring women to take part and be active.

Brands are also getting on board with the movement, Serena Williams has long been tied to the Nike brand and has been a symbol of a what a women athlete is truly capable of.

Long may the movement continue and we hope the wave of motivation and positivity will resonate with the next generation, here are some of the moments that define women in sport.

 

Serena has won 23 Grand Slam Titles, putting her 2nd of all time! 👏

 

Olga Korbut was a pioneer in the gymnastics world, pushing the boundaries of what was humanly possibly on the un-even bars. 🙀

 

Jessica Ennis was the face of London 2012 and has become a national hero after winning the home nations first gold in athletics. 🏅

 

The English Lionesses captured the heart of the nation during their 2015 World Cup run showing true passion and spirit coming back from adversity. ⚽️

 

Paula Radcliffe raised the bar when it came to distance running, her time of 2:15:25 in the 2003 London Marathon still stands today. 🏃🏻

Happy #InternationalWomensDay, we look forward to many more moments like this to come!
