Page 3 Profile: Gabby Logan, TV presenter
Her off the telly?
Logan is one of a handful of women to present sport on television – and only the second after Clare Balding to make the transition into entertainment TV, hosting I Love My Country.
Shouldn’t she have been washing the kits?
We’ll have none of that. Sport has had a bad rap of late over its attitude to women. From John Inverdale commenting that Wimbledon women’s champ Marion Bartoli was “never going to be a looker”, to questions over the Open being held at the male-only Muirfield club. Now Logan’s pitched in…
What’s she said?
She’s spoken out in the Radio Times about what she’s expected to wear on-screen: “The girls are basically wearing a leotard while the bloke’s in a suit and a tie.” Adding: “A boss at the BBC once told me that I was too glamorous and pointed to my high-heeled boots. I said: ‘I’ve just come from a radio show, it’s what I wear’. He said: ‘You don’t wear them when you do the dishes, do you?’
So she knows her stuff?
We’d stake a pair of season tickets that she knows more about football than you. Her father, Terry Yorath, played for Leeds United and Wales.
And didn’t she marry a sportsman?
Yes, she married rugby player Kenny Logan in 2005, but she’s also had her own sports career, coming eighth in rhythmic gymnastics for Wales at the 1990 Commonwealth Games. She’ll be replacing Inverdale as the Beeb’s ‘face of athletics’ – a role she accepted with a sporting attitude, saying: “John’s a good broadcaster. I don’t think anybody deserves to be hung out to dry over just one comment.”
