The revolutionary effects of female athletes on sport
Today, there are famous and popular women in almost every sport but there are some typical genres of sport where women especially shine. Let’s see a couple of great examples to how women are transforming the sports these days:
Women have transformed the overall perception of themselves: there are tons of misconceptions about women, most of which are told or thought by men. These include those claims according to which women are weak, they lack stamina and strength to go thought a sport event and win. Luckily, these guys were already proven very wrong.
Women’s participation is making the international game tons more competitive and successful: this is absolutely true. Take the 2012 Olympics which was a pioneering event on all accounts.
Female athletes are very popular because they can inspire lots of girls for them to do what their icon is doing. There are some female athletes who are really pioneers of a respective sport:
The Chilean matador (bullfighter) Conchita Cintron arrived in Mexico in 1937 and soon became the country’s Nr. 1 top ranked female bullfighter fighter and the biggest known female bullfighter
Making sportswear trendy: female athletes have much larger potential in making a simple sports outfit fashionable. That’s also ay many famous players earn pretty well on their own right.
It is worthwhile mentioning that as acknowledged by official resources women athletes are still earning much less money than the men in every pro and amateur sport. The numbers are roughly 30% but in professional sports it is even much higher. Just think about NFL. Same goes for the media coverage too, according to which it’s only around 5% of the whole world sports media that pays attention to female sportswomen.
