Running Things with Donovan Bailey


Underdogs & The Moral Grey Area of Sports Business

Season 1, Ep. 11

In this episode, the hosts Donovan Bailey & Simon Jain start by launching into the steadfast and determined performance of underdog Heavyweigh boxer Oleksandr Usyk, as he stunned the boxing world with an upset defeat of Anthony Joshua. The conversation then turns into the moral ambiguity of sports as it pertains to discipline and intolerance of racism and sexism; is it even remotely enough at this point? The discussion draws to to light recent events in sport such as the racist taunting incident involving Jalen Smereck in the Ukrainian hockey league, and the anti-abortion petition signed by 500 + women athletes to illuminate the on-going abortion issues in the United States.
