Almost three weeks since the last race weekend in Monza, Formula One is back and the 2022 champion could be confirmed as early as this weekend. It speaks to the pure dominance of Max Verstappen that the title race was over before we even hit summer and even with six races remaining, it could be a moot point come Monday morning. But there are so many other sub-plots in the paddock as there always are. Can Daniel Ricciardo tap into his good fortune over the years at Singapore to make a compelling argument for one of the three remaining 2023 seats?

In one of the greatest seasons in major league history, Judge, the Yankees outfielder, has matched Maris’s American League record for home runs in a single season. Aaron Judge went seven games without a home run and admitted the chase for No. 61 wore on him. When apartheid was the official policy in South Africa, many sports people, particularly in rugby union, adopted the conscientious approach that they should not appear in competitive sports there. Some feel this was an effective contribution to the eventual demolition of the policy of apartheid, others feel that it may have prolonged and reinforced its worst effects. Research suggests that sports have the capacity to connect youth to positive adult role models and provide positive development opportunities, as well as promote the learning and application of life skills. In recent years the use of sport to reduce crime, as well as to prevent violent extremism and radicalization, has become more widespread, especially as a tool to improve self-esteem, enhance social bonds and provide participants with a feeling of purpose.
The Power of Pause: Why and How to Take Breaks in Sport
Judo, invented in 1882 by Kanō Jigorō in an effort to combine Western and Asian traditions, attracted European adherents early in the 20th century. Rowing , one of the first sports to assume its modern form, began to attract a following after the first boat race between the Universities of Oxford and Cambridge and the inauguration of the Henley Regatta . “Athletics” became popular after Oxford and Cambridge held their first track-and-field meet in 1864.
Peasant women participated freely in the ball games and footraces of medieval times, and aristocratic ladies hunted and kept falcons, but middle-class women contented themselves with spectatorship. Even so, they were more active than their contemporaries in Heian Japan during the 8th to 12th centuries. Encumbered by many-layered robes and sequestered in their homes, the Japanese ladies were unable to do more than peep from behind their screens at the courtiers’ mounted archery contests. Venationes, which set men against animals, became popular even in the Greek-speaking Eastern Empire, which historians once thought immune from the lust for blood. The greater frequency of chariot races can be explained in part by the fact that they were relatively inexpensive compared with the enormous costs of gladiatorial combat. The editor who staged the games usually rented the gladiators from a lanista and was required to reimburse him for losers executed in response to a “thumbs down” sign.
None of this is meant to disparage the phenomenal women athletes at the top of their game. But if we stopped dividing sport by sex, elite women’s sport as we know it could cease to exist. We might miss out on Megan Rapinoe at the World Cup or the spectacle of Sydney McLaughlin effortlessly gliding over hurdle after hurdle. Acknowledging the performance differential should encourage us to do everything possible to make sure female athletes can keep competing at these levels. We take a look at some of the key figures in women’s sports history in Philly and how things have changed in the 50 years since Title IX was signed into law.
