Flame Bearers is the first global storytelling platform, illuminating the unsung stories of resilient women Olympians & Paralympians. We are a community driving positive change, building connections, and creating a space where women athletes feel valued and empowered to share their stories. We tell stories via podcast, video and live events, giving women Olympians & Paralympians a platform to share their trials and triumphs, discuss what life is like outside the games, what matters most to them, and bring unique perspectives to their stories. These stories deserve to be heard. Because they inspire us, help us to understand the world better, and move us to tap into our own resilience.
