Athletes Helping Young Girls and Women Staying Fit
Basketball’s Sabrina Ionescu, soccer’s Carli Lloyd and swimming’s Katie Ledecky are among the athletes who will help young girls and women stay mentally and physically fit during the coronavirus pandemic.
The Women’s Sports Foundation and Yahoo Sports are launching #WeKeepPlaying, a live-stream event on Saturday at 4 p.m. EDT. They’ll join tennis great Billie Jean King and former Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice in taking questions from young athletes and providing tips on resilience and training.
King says it’s about “bringing together our community of prominent women athletes and leaders to empower, support and inspire young girls -- and each other -– during this unprecedented time.”
Sports broadcaster Cari Champion will moderate the hour discussion, streamed on YahooSports.com.
