  • The Telegraph published this video item, entitled “Sport’s #MeToo movement: The women speaking out” – below is their description.

    Mhairi Maclennan was 18 years old when she moved to Edinburgh to study, and join a new coaching set up.

    It was a move that, she says now, “changed the course of my life”.

    Under her new coach, John Lees, Maclennan’s distance running was about to step up a gear. But there was one niggling issue.

    The culture around training, and particularly sports massages, felt uncomfortable.

    She is one of several women who spoke to Telegraph Sport to express a desire to reclaim sport as a safe space.
