Picked to play by JFK:
We're in Washington as the Nationals try and win their first ever World Series. With victory, as is tradition a trip to the White House to meet the president, which given that it's only 5km across the city from their home stadium should be pretty easy for the Nationals. There's is a long association between the political heart of America and Washington's sports teams but none better we think that this story. Back in 1962, Tom Brown was a young man at the start of his sporting career. He remains one of the few people to have played both Major League Baseball and American Football professionally. He was a twice Superbowl winner with the Green Bay Packers. During his one season with the Washington Senators he started one particular game under the order of President John F Kennedy.
Protecting young athletes:

We sat down with a young hopeful.
A cape crusader:
Many of the townships in Cape Town, South Africa are plagued by high crime rates. Communities often lack recreational opportunities which in turns attracts some young people to get caught up in anti social behavior. But thanks to the efforts of football and a local policeman, things in one such township is changing.

Alberto Salazar: The inside story
For years there had been rumours. But they were just that - rumours. Then in 2015, a BBC documentary accused one of the world's top athletics coaches of being involved in widespread doping. This week, Alberto Salazar was banned from the sport for four years after an investigation by the US anti-doping agency. Salazar runs the Nike Oregon Project, which has been home to some of the world’s leading athletes, including, until two years ago, Britain’s four-time Olympic champion Mo Farah. Mark Daly, an investigative journalist for the BBC, has been following this story for more than four years. He tells Caroline the process behind making the documentary and how he got key witnesses to speak up.

Five years on, she now wants to raise awareness of concussion in a sport where it receives little attention.
