The PWHL’s record-setting launch & women’s soccer’s ACL curse
Hey, hi, hello!
This one’s for the girls — today’s episode of The GIST of It breaks down the latest from the women’s ice and pitch.
Co-hosts Ellen Hyslop and Steph Rotz kick things off with the PWHL’s history-making first week, complete with smashed viewership and attendance records. They built it, and now everyone’s come to watch women’s hockey.
Part two features a more frustrating story out of women’s soccer: Chelsea FC and Australia superstar Sam Kerr is the latest athlete sidelined with an ACL injury. El and Steph parse through the concerning pattern of knee injuries in the sport, as well as the moves to address it.
