Team GB: Shortage of women in competitive gliding

Just 7% of British pilots involved in competitive gliding are women.

The International Gliding Championships will see unpowered aircraft soaring through the skies in thermal rich Australia in 2020.

Team GB's Ayala Truelove and Liz Sparrow, from Hampshire, hope success in next year's competition will encourage more women into the sport in time for the British championships in 2021.
