20 September 1973. @billiejeanking defeated the hugely sexist former US Open champion Bobby Riggs in the 'Battle-of-Sexes' Tennis match, 6-4,6-3,6-3. Women’s tennis - and sport in general - took a major step forward on this day in 1973 when the current Wimbledon singles champion Billie Jean King beat the former world No.1 Bobby Riggs in a match dubbed ‘The Battle of the Sexes’. Self-proclaimed male chauvinist Riggs had retired from playing in 1951 and was now aged 55 but, as a keen self-promoter with an eye for a money-making opportunity, he declared that he was still better than any female player, and would prove it on court. He first challenged current women’s number one, 30-year-old Margaret Court, and the two faced each other in California in May 1973. Using drop shots and lobs to unsettle Court, who tended to play at the net, Riggs was able to win the game 6-2, 6-1. Riggs then challenged other women players to try to beat him; eventually Bille-Jean King accepted the offer and they played in front of the largest crowd to date with 30,000 spectators. King won the game in straight sets, 6-4, 6-3, 6-3, taking home the $100,000 prize. “I wasn’t just playing for myself,” said King. “This was for everybody… I thought it would set us back 50 years if I didn't win." . . . . . . . #qotd #billiejeanking #battleofthesexes #womeninsport #onthisday #otd #equality #girlpower #womenempowerment #feminist #strongwomen #tbt

Hello Everyone! My name is Olivia and I am the other half of @her.profile. Em and I decided to share the reasons why we participate in sport and exercise and this is why I do it. I actually never realised how much of an impact sport and exercise has on my mental health, until I sat down to write this. Nearly 2 years ago I joined @cbxcrossfit_ in Wonthaggi. To say that it was the best choice I made is an understatement. It’s difficult to explain to people how CrossFit is not just a physical thing, but more a place for mental clarity: I guess you have to try it to really understand just how beneficial exercising is for the mind. 🌟 . . . . . #australianwomen #crossfitfamily #herprofile #womeninsport #exerciseforthemind #mentalhealth #mentalhealthawareness

Ran with knobdog last night. He wasn't too big a knob only 2 stops for poos around 1000 stops for wees and a gazillion stops for no bloody reason! I also decided to run without looking at my watch. Really feeling pressure at the moment especially after my handle down on Monday still playing on my mind. I needed to take away the pressure of chasing a split and just enjoy it with the knobdog. It worked. Got to love the knobdog!!❤ #runnersofinstagram #runningonempty #running #runningmummyoftwo #crossfit #fitness #thisgirlcan #womeninsport #knobdog #lovehimreally

Josefine from @Enskedeikf05 , who started playing as an 11-year-old in Enskede, was interviewed and is a good example that it's never too late to start playing football 🙌🏼 Thanks to the fact that today we have an team ages 5 to 87, we show that we are a modern society that is in line with Vision 2025 👌🏼😀 Sports for life! Enskede IK på Idrottensdag i Farsta!! Barn och ungdomar fick spela gåfotboll tillsammans med våra gåfotbollsspelande seniorer ⚽️🚶🏼‍♂️Vi bemannade också en bana med sarg där man kunde spela 3 vs 3. Josefine från @enskedeikf05 som började spela fotboll som 11-åring i Enskede intervjuades och visade ett gott exempel på att det aldrig är för sent att börja spela fotboll 🙌🏼 Tack vare att vi idag har ett åldersspann i föreningen på 5år - 87 år visar vi att vi är en modern förening som ligger helt i linje med idrottens vision 2025 👌🏼😀 Idrott för alla livet ut 🙌🏼🖤❤️ #beactive #enskedeik #eik #fotboll #enskede #idrottensdag #idrottlivetut #idrott #gåfotboll 🚺⚽ #fotball #voetbal #voetball #fussball #SanDiegoSeniorGames #SoccerWomenPLAY #SeniorGames #seniorgames2018 #womenssoccer #womensoccer #womensfootball #womeninfootball #womeninsport #womeninsports #adultsoccerleague #ladiesfootball #SanDiegoSoccerWomen #walkingfootball #SeniorAthletes @seniorgames1 @worldseniorgames
