Episode 28

#28 In conversation with ... Robert Vilahamn

Meet Robert Vilahamn

From founding Vilahamn Standard Soccer Academy in Uganda to being the Head Coach of BK Häcken, a team in the highest division of women’s football in Sweden, and being a Partner & CEO för Gignation, Robert's career spans many fields and industries. However, it is his passion for women’s sports and sports in general that has brought him to our Podcast.

Some key takeaways from our conversation include:

  1. It's very important for the other 50% of the population, men, to be allies of women in sports
  2. We should not compare women's football to men's football at all.
  3. The language we use, such as, "hit like a girl", "kick like a girl" and "run like a girl" can have very detrimental effects. And as such, we should do away with such phrases and most importantly, such attitudes.
