I Coulda Been a Contenda...

I'm drawn to sports where women can compete on a level playing field with men. I've never been a fan of car racing but that might change now that women are becoming competitive in the field. I had done some research awhile back and knew that women had always been involved in the sport, but never in large numbers. Then I ran across a promo display at my grocery store for the Hostess Race Divas.

I also have dreams of a woman one day winning (overall) the Ironman Triathlon and I think Heather Fuhr has gotten the closest. Go Heather! Make them change it to the FeMale Triathlon. (Although since women don't finish in the top ten that is currently a distant dream.)

Any ideas for sports that women should compete in where they are currently under-represented or not allowed?

  1. Most track and field, I think.

    Tennis. (Remember the Battle of the Sexes? Billie Jean King won, dammit.)
