Is there a sport that women can compete equally with men? I’ll grant that there are many sports such as basketball, where the best in the world are logically men, since there is a significant difference in mean height between the genders.
However, one would think that there are plenty of other sports that women could excel in. At the highest levels, golf, darts, bowling, poker, sharpshooting, chess, billiards, car racing… all seem to be dominated by men. There are separate leagues for women in many of these.
People often wrestle with the definition of “sport”… could a sport be defined as something with a lot of public interest and numerous spectators in which women cannot consistently dominate over men at the highest levels? (i.e. Annika Sorenstam competing in or winning a single PGA event doesn’t count)
Let’s keep the joke answers like “giving birth”, “beauty pageant” or “groin kicking competition” out of this thread (feel free to start a diff. thread if you like, though!) I suppose the opposite of basketball is limbo contests. Is there a world champion of limbo? How about something like RoShamBo?
