Towards a more Compassionate World Through Sport: The True Athlete Project - Laurence Halsted (Pt1) - Meaningful Sport Series
Laurence Halsted is a two-time Olympian, Performance director at the Danish Fencing Federation, and a member of the True Athlete Project (TAP) team. In today's episode, we hear about his career in sport and how his journey led him to working in TAP which is a project dedicated to working towards a more compassionate world through sport. As TAP website states,
“Sport can provide life changing moments of joy, freedom and meaning. But too often sport fails to live up to its potential, causing harm, and perpetuating injustice.”
People working at the True Athlete project are not satisfied with the status quo and are working in towards making a positive difference. We explore the mentoring programme and how the message of TAP has been received in the world of elite sport.
