Maana Patel and Dr. Adam Cohen

Maana Patel and Dr. Adam Cohen debate co-ed sports on Twitter Spaces, December 7, 2022.

Sports organizations around the world are reexamining how men and women can compete fairly against each other. Some are introducing co-ed teams and open leagues, and there are sports like korfball and teqball, which are designed to be co-ed. Dr. Adam Cohen, senior lecturer at the University of Technology Sydney, and Maana Patel, Indian Olympic swimmer, joined Doha Debates on Twitter Spaces to answer the question: Is it time for co-ed sports?

The conversation took place on December 7, 2022, and was hosted by Karen Given.
