Michelle Sinaida is a member of the Kenya Lionesses, the national women's team for rugby. In her first international game against Uganda, she scored the game's winning try. Despite the team's performance winning them a slot at the 2021 Olympics, financial corruption and lack of support for women's rugby players in Kenya makes it difficult for athletes like Sinaida to compete at the level required by the international stage – even before COVID-19. "Everyone just wants to have a piece of what is not theirs," she says. “You find that at the end of the day, the people who suffer are the people at the bottom who should be receiving what has been released.”
