Anna Toman to feature in Team GB series on female Olympians

GB and England’s Anna Toman will feature in a new six-part digital series charting the stories of Team GB’s female Olympians.

Sporty AF (Sporty and Female) features candid conversations between athletes on navigating both their sporting careers and day-to-day lives as women, with discussion topics including body image, mental and physical health, menstrual cycles and gender equality.

Across the series, Toman will be profiled in the series which will also feature Abi Burton (rugby sevens), Amber Hill (shooting), Imani-Lara Lansiquot (athletics), Katy Nicholls (cycling), Jazmin Sawers (athletics), Kate Shortman (artistic swimming), Andrea Spendolini-Siriex (diving), Nekoda Smythe-Davis (judo), Izzy Thorpe (artistic swimming), and Kimberly Woods (canoe).

The first episode, Changing The Game features Tokyo 2020 bronze medal-winning sprinter Lansiquot, alongside double Olympic long jumper and British indoor record holder Sawyers, and Shortman and Thorpe, who made their Olympic debut together in Tokyo and claimed both European and World Championship bronze in 2023. 

Sawyers said: “We are going through a genuine paradigm shift in women’s sport at the moment that is long overdue but unbelievably exciting. 

“Sporty AF was so much fun to be a part of and the honest conversations we had tackled some really important topics that we need to talk about more. Oh, and there were a lot of laughs along the way!”

Episode one of Sporty AF will be available to watch via Team GB’s YouTube channel from Sep 13.
