伦敦奥运会即将开始。今年,女子赛事项目将会占据总数的46%。女子拳击将首次亮相,使得女子赛事数量增加到140种。女性在运动中已经取得了显著进步,无论是在美国还是在世界各地。1896年第一次举办当代奥运会时是没有女性赛事的,因为奥运官员们认为举办女性赛事是无趣并且不切实际的。然而,在1900年奥运会上,网球和高尔夫成为首次加入奥运会的女子项目。那时只有22个女性运动员,仅占全部运动员的2.2%。一组数据可以证明女性已经取得的进步:在2008年的北京奥运会上女性运动员数量达到4637个,占运动员总数的42.4%。

女性的奥林匹克(Women in the Olympics) - 美国马尾妹 - 花旗国的半边天

 The London Olympic games will be starting very shortly. This year, women’s events will make up 46% of the total Olympic events. Women’s boxing will make its debut, bringing the total number of women’s events to 140. Females have made significant progress in sports, both in America, and worldwide. When the modern Olympics first began in 1896, there were no women’s events, as Olympic officials thought it would be impractical and uninteresting to feature women’s sports. However, in the 1900 Olympics, tennis and golf became the first women’s Olympic sports. At that time, there were only 22 female participants, or 2.2% of all participants. To demonstrate just how far women have come, 4,637 women, or 42.4% of all participants, took part in the 2008 Beijing Olympics.

In America, many people support and enjoy women’s sports, including women Olympic athletes. Even Vogue magazine, which normally does not feature sports, especially boxing, printed an article about America’s female boxer, Marlen Esparza, who will compete in London this year. It is also reported that several Middle Eastern nations, including Qatar, Brunei, and Saudi Arabia, will send women athletes to the Olympics for the first time in history. As the London Olympics opens, many people will be cheering for their home country and for their favorite athletes. This year, keep an eye out for the women, who now make up nearly half of the participants.
