Maggie Alphonsi, star of women’s rugby with 70 caps for England has turned her attention to a new challenge – to qualify for the Olympic Games in Rio 2016 in shot put.
Maggie is also one of the Women’s Sport Trust Patrons, so an obvious choice to be the first athlete we chose to photograph for the Sport is Beautiful Campaign. We worked with Sean Malyon (one of the photographers featured in our KPMG exhibition) to capture Maggie in training and the results are stunning.
