Goodnewspaper: The Sports Edition
This is our first-ever Sports Edition of the Goodnewspaper. It's filled to the brim with stories of people using sports to do good.
Sports connect us. Sports help us feel a sense of hope. And sports give athletes a platform — and countless athletes choose to use that platform to make the world a better place.
This issue of the Goodnewspaper won't share scores, stats, or schedules — but it does dive into the unique ways that sports and athletes (from a diverse range of big and small sports) are filling the world with more good. It's not just feel-good stories of overcoming challenges — but next-level stories of sports encouraging and empowering people to create a more equitable, just, and good future.
Inside this issue you'll find:
🎯 The story of the asylum-seeking Olympian who helped found the Refugee Paralympic Team
🏎 How women in Monaco are racing off-road cars through the desert — and funding medical care along the way
🤺 Growing trends toward athletes going plant-based, sports being more inclusive to those who wish to dress modestly, and women becoming more and more represented in sports
⚽ A stunning centerfold poster featuring a quote from Megan Rapinoe
⛳ The unique ways athletes from "niche" sports like quidditch, roller derby, and disc golf are making a difference
🥇 And so much more
