With Dara Torres winning silver medals at 41 you think that the topic of age would no longer be an issue right….
Wrong, while watching a biking event, a medal event no less, the commenters felt the need to comment that at 31 years old the women is probably just feeling “lucky” to be included in the olympics….
Um shut the fuck up about age already. Women do not immediately turn 30 and lose the ability to compete athletically and there is no luck involved in qualifying for the Olympics. She physically earned it by being better than others. In my mind it’s like the announcers are saying: okay you can be frivolous and athletic in your 20s but shouldn’t you be home with a family and shit by the time you hit 30, stop trying to be like the men and get back to what you’re supposed to do, reproduce and feed fucking family.
