4 Olympic Female Athletes We Absolutely Stan

After a long delay, the Olympics are finally taking place. The Tokyo Olympics began on Friday, July 23 with a considerably more stripped-down ceremony than in previous decades, acknowledging the Coronavirus pandemic that has changed the world in the last two years.

Some great female Olympians are among the competitors who have made the journey to Tokyo: breaking barriers, making history, and setting records at this year’s Olympics. Some of them may be recognizable to you, while others may be unfamiliar. The women we’ll be witnessing compete in the most crucial competition of their lives are as follows:

Simone Biles – USA

This year, Simone Biles became the fourth most popular sports figure in the US behind only Tom Brady, Michael Jordan and LeBron James, according to a recent survey from Morning Consult.

The 24-year-old decided to drop out of 5 out of 6 events to focus on her mental health, which sparked a long overdue conversation about prioritizing mental health over success.

She became only the fifth female gymnast to win four gold medals in a single Olympics when she led the United States to victory in the team event in Rio 2016. She only got bronze on the balance beam.

PV Sindhu – India

Star shuttler P V Sindhu has been one of India’s most successful athletes in recent years. Her accomplishments and achievements are unrivaled, and there aren’t enough compliments to give her.

After winning medals at the World Championships, she first rose to international prominence. After her outstanding performance at Rio 2016, she became a sensation. She performed admirably in Rio and won a silver medal.

Sindhu just competed in the Tokyo Olympics and won a bronze medal. She became the first Indian female athlete to win two Olympic medals, and the second Indian Olympian to do so, following wrestler Sushil Kumar.

Elaine Thompson-Herah – Jamaica

Elaine Thompson-Herah shattered Florence Griffith Joyner’s 33-year-old Olympic record in the women’s 100 meters recently, pointing to the scoreboard even before crossing the line in 10.61 seconds to defend her title and lead a Jamaican 1-2-3 finish.

She has been an inspiration to all aspiring athletes around the world, leaving all her opponents behind in the dust.

Ramla Ali – Somalia

Ali made history as the first boxer to represent Somalia at the Olympic Games, paying tribute to her birth country, from which her family fled as war refugees to London when she was a toddler.

Ali is also a model and a civil rights activist in addition to her boxing career. She has also written a self-help book that will be adapted into a feature film and will be released in September.
