Baroness Sue Campbell
A former physical education teacher Baroness Campbell played netball for England and, as head of UK Sport, turned Britain’s Olympic and Paralympic teams into medal-winning machines. Last year, she took on what is likely to be her most difficult task yet: transforming women’s football in England. She wants to double female participation in the game and nurture excellence in players. Her sights are set on winning the Women’s World Cup. Advocates of the women’s game say it will take someone with Baroness Campbell’s record to make this happen. One of the most influential women in British sport, she was made an MBE in 1991, a CBE in 2003 and entered the House of Lords as a cross-bench peer in 2008.
