The battle of the sexes has raged on since the beginning of time. Men are supposedly better than women at one thing or another, and women reign supreme in other areas of life. When it comes to sports, most people assume that men are the dominant ones because of their physical advantages. They are stronger and faster, and thus they naturally excel at sports. In this article, I’m going to analyze that theory closely and determine if men really are better athletes than women. The results of my analysis may surprise you.
For the most part, men tend to be fitter than women. That isn’t to say that women can’t be as strong and built as men can. Their bodies just aren’t used to that. Women have to work a lot harder to build up the same muscles as men do. Thus they aren’t always able to play sports like men can.
From what I have seen, women are actually more competitive than men, in sports and in life in general. I know a lot of women who graduated at the top of their police academy because they were driven to succeed. Women are particularly competitive against other women, making entirely female sports really interesting to watch. Men can be just the same, but I think the girls win this round.
Men do have a tendency to last longer on the court, depending on what they are playing. Since women are lighter though, they are sometimes able to maintain higher stamina levels as well. This usually comes down to a person’s strength, weight, and overall conditioning. I don’t know if I could give this one to either gender.
Men naturally have more strength than women, and they always will. Women aren’t designed to have thunder thighs and Popeye arms. They are supposed to be a little more delicate than that. Unfortunately, I’m going to have to give this one to the guys.
Conclusion? Men are in fact better athletes than women, at least from a physical perspective. Women have a better frame of mind to succeed in sports, but their bodies aren’t designed to do so. Both genders could stand to learn from one another if they want the best success possible. Perhaps that is what we should have been focusing on all along.
