It is a known fact that they can never be equal with men in sports so why do they want to embarrass themselves like that?. Not insulting women, just saying that that physically they don't stand a chance.

Now discuss who is kinder, smarter and good willed?. Women wins outright.

Australia's national women's soccer team the Matildas lose 7-0 to an under FIFTEENS boys' side

  • Australian women soccer team Matildas played Newcastle Jets u/15 boys
  • The match played in Newcastle saw the Matildas thrashed 7-0 by the boys
  • Matildas were without their international stars but still had plenty of talent
  • The girls play New Zealand in a friendly next month in preparation for Rio

Common reactions.

Some facts.

Based on preliminary comparative research findings by , it was found that women compete very well against men—and many times better than them—in the open water swimming world. In fact, it appears that is unique among the world's various athletic competitions.

In particular, in the marathon swimming world, not only are women holding their own against their male counterparts, but they are also waiting on shore for the men to finish.

Men vs. Women In The Endurance Sports World

In the endurance sports world, the total number of athletes who compete in triathlons and open water swims remains skewed towards men. Both in triathlons in America and open water swims around the world, the percentage of participants in both sports are about the same (63 percent men versus 37 percent women).

In the marathon running world, the ratio of male participants to female participants is about 60 percent men to 40 percent women.
In the running world, the average male time of four hours and 29 minutes remains faster than the average female time of four hours and 59 minutes.

At the highest echelons of the sport, the women's best time in the marathon only placed her 473 on the 2009 performance list for men and 3205 in history.


In the sport of triathlon, while the top women and the average women are gradually closing the differential gap, there are still significant differences in performance.
For example, in the full Ironman triathlon, the average times of men versus women by age category are as follows.

Where Open Water Swimming Differs

But open water swimming appears to be different. Women do appear to perform better relative to their male counterparts, especially as the distances increase.

How much of it has to do with the sports women choose to participate in?

How much of it has to do with the pressure on women to stay feminine and not get "too" muscular or fit?

How much is just genetics?

There are differences between men and women what? I'm glad they're different.
