Highlight on Female Athletes
Without legacy, there would be no legends. Women who set their minds to do something thought unachievable become undeniable. They break the rules and remake them for the future. In 1966, Bobbi Gibb wanted to run in the Boston Marathon. The race director denied her request, stating that women are not physiologically able to run marathon distances. It Was ON! Come race day, Bobbi hid in a bush and jumped into the pack wearing her brother's bermuda shorts and a hoodie. She completed the race, finishing in the top 1/3 of the pack. Womens like Bobbi Gibb have paved the way for the future of female athletes.
Today, female athletes from all over the world are breaking records and making history. At the age of 22, Simone Biles is the most decorated American gymnast, and the world's third most decorated gymnast. Megan Rapinoe, an American soccer player, made history by becoming the oldest player to score in a FIFA Women's World Cup final. Danica Patrick, is now the most successful woman in the history of American open-wheel racing. These athletes have taken examples from Bobbi Gibb and many others who have dared to make history.
