Comments on: Why does Murray’s wrist get more coverage than Cooke’s win? http://quickrelease.tv/?p=345 Bicycle videos and fluff Mon, 21 Apr 2014 05:08:53 +0000 http://wordpress.org/?v=2.6.5 By: Karl OnSea http://quickrelease.tv/?p=345#comment-37204 Karl OnSea Sat, 08 Mar 2008 18:26:20 +0000 http://quickrelease.tv/?p=345#comment-37204 I'm helping a friend get fit, and one of the things I talked about with her when we first started running was that there don't seem to be any good female role models . . . so competitive sport, fitness, and outdoor physical things are just seen as non-feminine. Things that men and boys do. It's clear that this isn't the case - it's just that the media doesn't do such a good job of reporting what women do. As you pointed out, they'd rather have an article about a male tennis player not winning, than a female cyclist coming first. Or maybe its not sexism, but another case of cyclism? ;-) One last thing - I looked through the pictures on the Times site, and after giving Victoria a quick once over, found myself staring intently at the bike. I think maybe I need to get out more!
