Successful Women in Sports

By on March 8, 2018

In honour of International Women’s Day, we thought we’d bring you a list of a few of the most famous women in sports today.

Ronda Rousey

Ronda Rousey has somehow become one of the most famous MMA fighters in a sport which is otherwise monopolized by men. Starting way back in 2010, Rousey’s career has had its ups and downs but mostly ups as she became the very first woman to sign with UFC. Rousey is frequently seen modelling in magazines and has entertained the notion of acting since appearing in smaller roles. As a notable trash talker, Rousey is clearly a fighter who doesn’t lack confidence.

Danica Patrick

A NASCAR racer who’s spent over a decade and is probably the most famous woman in the sport, Patrick has landed some of the biggest money amongst female athletes today. Her association with GoDaddy and other endorsements have helped make her a household name in addition to her IndyCar Series wins. Though some may argue most of her notoriety has come from her commercial presence, her rise to stardom couldn’t have happened without her successful racing career.

Serena Williams

Probably the most famous female athlete in North America today, Williams has single-handedly won 13 individual Grand Slams, three Olympic gold medals, and many more accolades. Williams has somehow harnessed and enthralled the spotlight of the media creating a celebrity aura of her own and most recently has caused the world to become “Royals-level” obsessed due to her wedding and pregnancy.
