People in the U.S. used to think that if girls were good at sports their sexuality would be affected. Being feminine meant being a cheerleader, not an athlete. The image of women is changing now. You don’t have to be pretty for people to come and see you play.
The mark of great sportsmen is not how good they are at their best, but how good they are their worst.
