She Shoots, She Scores" She Shoots, She Scores!" Ever since the plucky Kallipateira snuck in to compete in the all-male Olympic games in ancient Greece, women athletes have fought to win recognition for their sex. And once they had exchanged their corsets for bloomers and took up cycling en masse in the late 1800s, the wheels of progress were set in motion. Who can forget 1973, when tennis great Billie Jean King beat Bobby Riggs in the legendary "Battle of the Sexes"? And if you think hockey is just for men, tell that to Manon Rheaume, who played goalie for the NHL in 1992. Today women are active at every level of competition in dozens of sports. "The Complete Idiot' s Guide(R)to Women in Sports" gives you all the facts you need, from antiquity to the 21st century. With pith and punch, Randi Druzin traces the major opposition to women in sports throughout the ages and catalogues women' s trials and triumphs, sport by sport. More of what you' ll find inside: Up-to-date information from the 2000 Summer Olympics in Sydney, Australia.Heroic tales from our spirited foremothers to modern-day girl-jocks.Complete "rules of the game" for each sport.Quotes and trivia to test your knowledge.A list of the major award winners across a variety of competitions.
