Human First, Athlete Second



Fun fact: when you have a sport where the women are just as good, if not better, than the men, and yet they aren’t allowed to compete at all because 1) there aren’t enough women who participate and 2) they’re forbidden from competing with the men—that’s called discrimination.

With ski-jumping, gender doesn’t have an impact on how far you can soar—it’s all technique, and the girls are as good as the guys. But, as the movie Ready to Fly shows, there’s some gross sexism at work in the sport, and a few young women have admirably taken it upon themselves to change that.
