Strava unveils athlete posts, a way to create and share content on the social network for athletes. 36 Strava athletes from around the world will now have the ability to post stories, photos, questions, gear tips, race reports, recommendations and workouts – all kinds of content in addition to shared activities. They include some notable athletes in the Strava community such as Susie Chan and Rich Mitch known for telling great stories. It’s another step towards Strava becoming the place where athletes can have everything they love about their sport in one app.
Known for going on big adventures and telling great stories, you can view the full list of athletes and follow each of them here.
“Strava is a place where athletes come to connect with each other, share their experiences and learn from one another,” says Aaron Forth, Chief Product Officer at Strava. “And until now, those connections have been based entirely on athletic activities. Our opportunity is to help athletes have conversations beyond their daily activities, sharing everything from favourite gear to injury recovery tips to travel recommendations. To open up those conversations, we are introducing the ability for members to post new types of content. Ultimately, when you want to engage with friends who share your passion for all things running, cycling, swimming, hiking, or any other sport, Strava is the place to do it.”
Athlete posts will be available to the entire Strava community later this summer, giving athletes the freedom to share more about their active lives and, for the first time, enjoy a variety of athletic content from the people they follow. Athletes will soon have a comprehensive home for the content they love most: one place to learn more about other athletes, get inspired by each other’s posts, share useful tips and articles and discuss relevant topics with other athletes.
