Female athletes not only lack support. Within public or private institutions, they face risky situations because they are women. These situations can range from receiving derogatory and sexist comments to harassment and experiencing sexual and sexual assault. All this just to develop in an area that should be by and for men only.
Not only athletes experience this. Many women who pursue some form of sports-related career, such as commentators or coaches, may endure the same abuse.
Sportswomen in Mexico may be victims of violence and intimidation
The current status of women in sports in Mexico may seem daunting. However, despite all these obstacles, Mexican women are brave and know how to notice.
The struggle to get women into sports in Mexico is pretty old. Although much remains to be done, we cannot say that no progress has been made in all these years. The first Mexican women to make their way to the Olympics were present in 1932 in Los Angeles.
He later returned to the London 1948 Mexican Olympics.
Since then, Mexican women have been present at the Olympics and more than once Mexican women have managed to get on the podium. All this despite the lack of moral and material support we face. Women in Mexico are slower to develop, but that doesn’t stop them from having impressive athletic skills.
The first Mexican women to win an Olympic medal was a source of national pride. Fencer Mariah Del Pilars Olden won a silver medal in the foil discipline in 1968 in Mexico. That same year, swimmer Maria Teresa Ramirez won a bronze medal in the 800-meter freestyle. In addition, athlete Enrique Basilar made history in the same edition of the Olympics as the first woman to light the Olympic cauldron.
Most games are passes: the QB throws the ball to a receiver who tries to catch it and runs with it into the end zone. The center can also go outside to take passes.
Running games are allowed at all times, except for the final 5 yards before reaching the end zone. In a run, the QB passes the ball to a teammate who runs across the field with it.
If the offensive team does not score a touchdown within the allotted time
The ball changes possession and the new offensive team starts from its own 5-yard line. All possessions change lanes except for interceptions that start on the offensive team’s 10 line. The teams change sides of the field after the first 20 minutes, but possession is not taken and the clock is not stopped.
The referee may stop the clock whenever he deems it necessary and notify the teams that there are 2 minutes left at the end of the second half of the game.
