Inspirational speaker Martine Wright named in Top 50 of the most influential women in sport.
The Independent on Sunday has published it’s first Annual Power list of 50 of the most influential women in Sport and among the list is Inspirational speaker Martine Wright, Paralympian and 7/7 bombing survivor. Community Sport Network has 'caught up' with Martine on several occasions and we are delighted that she has made the list.
Martine Wright was ranked number 37 on the list along side the likes of Barbara Slater BBC Director of Sport , Clare Balding, Jessica Ennis Hill Heather Rabatts, Karren Brady Dame Sarah Storey and many more!
Martine was described as formidable , unbreakable, hilarious and charismatic!
The panel of judges was drawn from across sporting disciplines and comprised athletes, administrators, and journalists with input via email from a wide range of expert organisations and individuals. Nominations had been circulated in advance of a meeting last week, held over several hours, at which each name was discussed and scored – the debate was intense.
The highly experienced sports journalist Sue Mott oversaw the proceedings and edited the citations, which were compiled by Caitlin Doherty, James Beeson, Bridie Pearson-Jones and Gabriel Popham.
