Sports Legends Share What GoodSport Means To Them

We asked several sports megastars what the words GoodSport means to them. Not surprisingly, their answers are as inspiring as their journeys.

GoodSport believes that a shared passion for sports is one of the strongest connection points in society. Our mission is to raise the visibility of women and girls in sports. We were fortunate to be able to ask some athletes we admire what our name means to them.
