Malaika Mihambo misses her training partners. The long jump world champion feels the same way we do. In an interview, Mihambo told us how she still keeps in touch and how she manages to motivate children to take part in sports, especially now.

THIS IS HOW THE OUTDOOR COMMUNITY IS DOING
Planning the Unplannable
It was a difficult year for everyone. Outdoor professionals also look back on an eventful time.
