How Have Women Evolved in the Sports World?
Over the last century women have come a long way in the world of sports. There used to be a time when a female athlete was almost unheard of and sports involvement was a dream that young girls could never pursue. Today however, women participate in every sport, including basketball, soccer, and even football. It took hundreds of years for women to get this far and they are still struggling for equal rights (Mullims). In these next few pages that you will be reading, I am going to tell you how women have got from where they were in the 1600's to where they are today.
Women were far more visible in American sporting life across time than the portraits of them in many histories would suggest. In about 1600 the earliest sportswomen were Native Americans (Struna). They participated in religious ceremonies, which called upon hours of dancing at a time. The passage from maidenhood to womanhood included physical displays and tests. Ball games were also a part of women’s daily life.
By the mid Eighteenth Century, the sporting experiences of women of European and African ancestries were far more varied then they had been earlier. Agricultural fairs, initiated by white farmers, planter
In between King's two strikes for honesty and women, she helped organize the first of several early 1970s professional leagues for women, the Virginia Slims tennis tour (Struna).

Problems in Sports
sport is nothing more than a healthy hobby, because if you are doing it properly then a pastime it most certainly isn’t.
This month’s two big sport celebrations - the Carey Olsen Sports Commission awards and Sportingbet Channel Islands Sports Personality of the Year - are heavyweight shows and it’s fitting that we are lucky to have Steve Cram and Lawrence Dallaglio to headline them.
The events, both staged at Beau Sejour, will emphasise once again that as we head towards the close of the first decade of the 21st century, that CI sport is stronger than ever.
Even Jersey aren’t bad.
It’s a golden generation for most Guernsey sport, but if there are areas we need to lift our game a notch or two it is in the three major team sports - football, cricket and rugby.
They each suffer from problems peculiar to each other.
Rugby’s biggest problem is, that for all its recent Siam successes and climb up the national league ladder, the domestic structure remains pitiful.
On this one, it’s encouraging to know that help is at hand.
We are days away from the formation of a new Guernsey Rugby Association and confirmation of the sport’s first full-time RDO, but the new man’s role will be not to strengthen GRUFC’s hand at London Three South-West level, but more to put in place a structure that will one day soon have rugby enjoying the healthy senior competition long enjoyed by the footballers and cricketers.
Not that those two sports have got it all right.
Cricket’s major problems are largely twofold now that it has put in place a superb junior development programme.
One handicap they can’t overcome overnight is to cover for missing out on almost a whole generation of cricketers who have disappeared out of view as the combined result of UK market forces taking them away, a fallow period for good players emanating from Elizabeth College and the

What is sports
Sport is an activity that is governed by a set of rules or customs and often engaged in competitively. Sports commonly refer to activities where the physical capabilities of the competitor are the sole or primary determinant of the outcome (winning or losing), but the term is also used to include activities such as mind sports (a common name for some card games and board games with little to no element of chance) and motor sports where mental acuity or equipment quality are major factors. Sport is commonly defined as an organized, competitive and skillful physical activity requiring commitment and fair play. Some view sports as differing from games based on the fact that there are usually higher levels of organization and profit (not always monetary) involved in sports. Accurate records are kept and updated for most sports at the highest levels, while failures and accomplishments are widely announced in sport news.The term sports is sometimes extended to encompass all competitive activities in which offense and defense are played, regardless of the level of physical activity. Both games of skill and motor sport exhibit many of the characteristics of physical sports, such as skill, sportsmanship, and at the highest levels, even professional sponsorship associated with physical sports.
Sports that are subjectively judged are distinct from other judged activities such as beauty pageants and bodybuilding shows, because in the former the activity performed is the primary focus of evaluation, rather than the physical attributes of the contestant as in the latter (although "presentation" or "presence" may also be judged in both activities).
Sports are most often played just for fun or for the simple fact that people need exercise to stay in good physical condition.
Origin of games
The Rise of the Games
The Olympic Games originated long ago in ancient Greece. Exactly when the Games were first held and what circumstances led to their creation is uncertain. We do know, however, that the Games were a direct outgrowth of the values and beliefs of Greek society. The Greeks idealized physical fitness and mental discipline, and they believed that excellence in those areas honored Zeus, the greatest of all their gods. , javelin, sprint, discus, and wrestling) was added to the Games in 708 B.C. The pancration was introduced in 648 B.C. This brutal sport had no rules and combined boxing and wrestling. A winner was named only when one man raised his hand in defeat or lay unconscious on the ground.
One legend about the origin of the Olympic Games revolves around Zeus. It was said Zeus once fought his father, Kronos, for control of the world. They battled atop a mountain that overlooked a valley in southwestern Greece. After Zeus defeated his father, a temple and immense statue were built in the valley below to honor him. This valley was called Olympia, and soon religious festivals developed there as people came to worship Zeus and to approach as nearly as possible his great strength. It is believed that these religious festivals eventually led to the famed Games of the Olympics.
Although we do not know just when the Games were first played, the earliest recorded Olympic competition occurred in 776 B.C. It had only one event, the one-stade (approximately 630-foot or 192-meter) race, which was won by a cook named Coroebus. This was the start of the first Olympiad, the four-year period by which the Greeks recorded their history.
Athletic competition became so important to the Greeks that the Olympic festivals were a peaceful influence on the warlike city-states. Sparta was famous for the strict military training of its citizens. But it would wait until the Games were over before sending fighters into battle. Other cities followed this example.
