While we love post-game interviews and chatting with athletes about their goals & training regimen, there’s something missing…the real story. All too often, we miss the REAL story, the behind the scenes moments that help athletes and coaches get them to where they are today.
With sports on pause, we used this time to talk to some of the best in sports about the reality of what it’s like to play at a high level, and the wild adventures it took to get the stars to the top. Whether you’re an athlete, aficionado, or just want to hear from baller athletes, gear up for The Global Game, now available on Apple Podcasts, Spotify, and Buzzsprout.
On The Global Game, follow along with Uru Founder & CEO Ainsley McCallister and former basketball pro Devereaux Peters as they unlock their motivators and horror stories you don’t usually hear – all wrapped up in a 30 minute episode.
You’ll be able to hear from a Hall of Fame coach on women’s rights and building a culture of success with Muffet McGraw. You can listen to what it’s like to get dual-citizenship to play professionally in a new country with Jordan Morgan. Kwan Browne, a field hockey idol, shares what he faced going from Trinidad and Tobago to England at a young age. Ever wonder what it’s truly like to play in Russia? Devereaux Peters shares her own experiences, all on The Global Game.
For us at Uru, we aim to create a space where athletes can gain an understanding on what is possible. The world of athletics is much bigger than most athletes think. No Borders. Just Sports. There are endless opportunities to play the sport you love, whether that be in your home country or abroad. We are breaking down sports leader’s stories to learn how they got to where they are today, and how they played The Global Game to get to the top.
