2012 Olympics set a new record as female athletes take on the charge from the men


This year we get to see something different going on in Olympics. Take it any field the leaders in every competition seems to be the females who are taking on the charge from the men. Be that boxer Claressa Shields or soccer striker Abby Wambach, their biceps and strong appealing performances have given them a centre stage in these Olympics. Another name that would be known and respected would be Irish boxer Katie Taylor, the four time light weight world champion, who is referred by her opponents as somebody who could be stopped only if a bus drives onto her.

Thursday night would be a night to be remembered for when the biggest crowd gets together to witness gold medal soccer match that would be played between United States and Japan, in a country where women matches are highly ignored. Britain got it first gold medal from a pair of rope armed female rowers Helen Glover and Heather Stanning and at the same time Sally Pearson pulled Australia out from a long time of losing in Olympics by winning gold in the 100 meter hurdles.

And if things continue the way they are at the moment then beware all the men, for this time the female athletes are all set to take the centre stage, something that has never happened before in an Olympic. Kiran Kidwai – International Desk, NMTV.
