Explore Women Athletes

Do you like to run, jump, or swim? Hit or kick a ball? Skate or ride horses? Then you probably like sports. If you do, you'll want to explore Women in Sports.

You'll meet women who have set records in track, tennis, swimming, gymnastics, and other sports. You'll see how pioneering women have opened up opportunities for you to compete in sports or enjoy sports for recreation and physical fitness.

Girls Explore® introduces you to some of these explorers in sports. You'll meet Mildred "Babe" Zaharias, a champion in golf and other sports, Dot Richardson, an olympic softball player who also earned her medical degree and is a skilled orthopedic surgeon, Peggy Fleming, Olympic skater, and Althea Gibson, tennis champion.

Click on the Additional Information links on the right column to learn more about the women of this world.

As you explore Women in Sports, you may find a sport or two you'd like to explore for yourself.
