Most of the time we are introduced to athletes at the top of their game, but in our all-new series ‘Beginner’s Guide,’ we meet them in the middle when they’re already excelling in their field, game to go all-in on (or forge) an entirely new path.
And so, through our new series, beginners guide, you are not only able to experience the humanity and vulnerability that comes when professional athletes step out of their comfort zones and tap into their creativity, but also have the opportunity and tools to do the same.
After all, whoever we are, we all have to start somewhere.

GUIDE 2: UPCYCLING
In this episode of A Beginner’s Guide, we meet professional long jumper Jazmin Sawyers, as she channels her passion for sustainability by learning to upcycle old clothing into a brand-new outfit.
Anything we can be doing at the moment to reduce our waste, is a positive thing.
