    What Drives the Connection Between Eating Disorders and Certain Sports?

    Dara Torres, celebrating a record time in the 2008 U.S. Olympic trials, battled bulimia in college. “I was extremely dark and moody,” she writes. “Pretty much all I thought about during college was what I ate, what I wanted to eat, what other people ate, what I’d need to do to get rid of the calories I’d ingested, how much exercise I got, and how I would look in my swimsuit when I mounted the blocks.” While Torres has now recovered from her eating disorder from college days, when she was one of the nation’s best swimmers, she is among a special group vulnerable to eating disorcers: Athletes. High-profile athletes like gymnast Shawn Johnson, swimmer Amanda Beard and tennis star Monica Seles have all come forward with histories of this type of psychological disorder, particularly damaging to young competitive athletes. Realated: 8 Things I Remind Myself When I’m Struggling in Eating Disorder Recovery In a 2004 study, researchers looked at the rates of EDs among athletes compared to non-athletes, and found that prevalence was higher in the more active set.

    A Look Back at 116 Years of Olympic Track Uniforms

    Olympic running has a tremendous history: It was the very first sport to be played at the 776 BC games in Olympia, Ancient Greece (somewhere between the future lands of Russia and Spain) — and has continuously evolved, incorporating more and more events like shot put, discus throw, and high and long jumps.  In Ancient times, Olympians didn’t wear much of anything (in fact, some ancient artifacts suggest that they wore nothing at all). But after a long hiatus, the Olympics were reintroduced in 1986 in Greece, once again. This time athletes wore clothes.

    As Women Succeed at Olympics, Commentators Fail to Discuss Their Success Without Sexism

    One hundred and sixteen years ago, the second-ever modern Olympic games was held in Paris — and women were allowed then to compete in only three sports: tennis, croquet and golf. Because while commentators and journalists seem to be able to discuss the male athletes and their achievements at the Games without being able to constantly discuss their gender — indeed, I have yet to see a headline boasting, Cisgender Male Swimmer Takes Home Most Medals Ever — the struggle continues to be all too real when it comes to giving female athletes equitable treatment.

Neither loss can be blamed on any one specific hit, point, or serve, but a sports analyst seems to know exactly what went wrong: the Canadian was too distracted by beauty, fashion, and hair to get the gold.
