Today, we’re going to get our Title IX on. We are always talking about the greatest male athletes of all-time. It’s time to give the female athletes some love. Who exactly are the best female athletes of all-time?
Admittedly, it’s slightly more challenging to identify the best female athletes simply because female athletes aren’t featured in the traditional sports that we follow extensively like the males. Furthermore, female athletics have taken a little more time to become main stream.
With that said, we have seen some all-time greats, and here they are…
5. Lisa Leslie – Basketball
I have to put Lisa Leslie here at 5. She revolutionized women’s basketball. It doesn’t hurt she’s been the WNBA MVP 4 times, and has won four Olympic Gold Medals. Leslie was the first woman to dunk in a game.
4. Bonnie Blair – Speed Skating
Bonnie Blair is probably considered the greatest female speed skaters of all-time. She has 5 gold medals and 1 bronze. Clear domination of the sport.
