A Game Of Two Halves Ep 42: Megan Rapinoe, the World Cup-winning US team, and tennis wunderkind Coco Gauff

9:48 mins

Synopsis: A Game of Two Halves is The Straits Times' weekly sports podcast that is out every Tuesday.

In this episode, ST sports correspondent Sazali Abdul Aziz is joined by his colleagues - reporters Nicole Chia and Kimberly Kwek - as they talk about women who have made waves in sports recently.

They discuss the legacy the US team - led by their outspoken skipper Megan Rapinoe -  has left after winning a fourth World Cup title last weekend, as well as 15-year-old tennis player Coco Gauff, who announced herself in spectacular fashion at Wimbledon.

The trio also mull if a female athlete might become as big a global superstar as Cristiano Ronaldo - who was mobbed when he visited Singapore last week - and what it will take for it to happen.
