No, this isn't a show about winning games, improving standings, or breaking records; it's a conversation about purpose. Each week, we bring you the stories of elite athletes and their unique journey to the top -- when they fell in love with their sport, who mentored them along the way, and what brings them meaning and fulfillment outside of competition. They are powerhouses not only in their arenas, but in their teams and communities because they are tapping into what gives them purpose beyond performance. And they are sharing it with you -- and us -- every week on the Hope Sports show.
