Whilst the gap amongst elite athletes remains the same, I think more women are likely to be health-conscious than men. This would include diet and exercise. I therefore conclude Miss Average is closing the gap on Mr Average.
I remember watching women's cricket for the 1st time as a young child in 1997 during the world cup here. It was totally boring with players lacking not only in strength and athleticism but also in skills. In 2013 as the World cup has once again being held here I am amazed to see the how the level has increased, the matches are far more interesting and entertaining. A team from the 1997 competition wont be able to compete with the ladies now. They are as skillfull as the male and their matches look like how 14-16 year old boys matches are, skilled players but not the strongest.So to my question considering the rate women are improving will it be possible say within 50 more years for them to catch up to male standards in sports. If not all will there be some elite athletes/teams who will be able to compete at the top level with male sportspersons. For e.g. a women playing NBA or a mixed football (soccer)/cricket team. Females already have won mixed gender competition in ultra marathon and there are some studies which says that it is possible for women to beat men in endurance sports like long distance running and swimming. In my mind there are arguments both pro and contra so I would ask considering a long time horizon how would the battle of the sexes in sports will play out, Will women ever catch up ?
