The ‘Beyond the Mark’ blog is a space sharing athletes’ and administrators’ personal stories on top of their sporting success. Beyond the Mark focuses on athletes from a different lens in comparison to the traditional media. The blog focuses on the person; their interests and dislikes, their dreams and life lessons, their successes and failures and most importantly their stories we might not necessarily read about in the sport section. The stories which are unique to them. The stories which have ultimately shaped their character and identity; because at the end of the day, they’re only human, just like you and I, and they too have layers beyond the sporting arena.
