The high schooler won the 100-meter freestyle only to be immediately disqualified because her swimsuit showed too much of her buttocks.

The student says she was dismissed and unable to renew her athletic scholarship after her coach told her to take down photos that she deemed "too sexy."
Gymnast Morgan Hurd is just your average 16-year-old 'Harry Potter' and 'Hamilton' fan who can stick it without losing her specs.
The $1.67 trillion global sportswear and athleisure market tends to focus on style and comfort, not on function. That leaves women without sports bras that support them.

Writing for Porter magazine’s Incredible Women of 2016 issue, Serena discusses the still prevalent problem of gender inequality in sports. In September, the Women on Boards organisation stated that “no real progress” had been made to address the problem and that there was “a long way to go” before equality became a reality.
After the Olympics competition ended, a few of Team USA’s gold medal-winning gymnasts took a well-deserved beach day in Rio.
Saudi-Arabian marathon runner Sarah Attar finished the Olympic marathon in three hours and 14 seconds, roughly 52 minutes behind the winner. Covered head-to-toe in conservative clothing to honor her religious beliefs, Attar spent that whole 26.2 miles dripping in sweat to break barriers for a subset of female athletes around the world. This is Attar’s second Olympics, but Sunday marked her first marathon appearance.
It isn’t just their graceful routines and perfectly coordinated moves that have been mesmerizing Olympic viewers the world over. The synchronized swimmers of Team USA also seem to have the kind of hair that defies the elements.
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.
Eugenie Bouchard’s Olympics journey was only short-lived, falling to Angelique Kerber in straight sets and then losing in doubles with partner Gabriela Dabrowski to Czechs Lucie Safarova and Barbora Strycova, both during the second round of tournament play. 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.
We are all in the mood for sports at the moment; getting back into the swing of summer sports with Wimbledon, and with the build up to the Rio Olympics it’s on everyone’s mind - particularly now that we have the weather for it!
Serena Williams opted for sandals paired with her eye-catching bright red chiffon skirt and jewel-encrusted top for the Wimbledon winners' dinner in London.
Players at Wimbledon wearing Nike's “Premier Slam” dress have reportedly been asked to return it for alterations because it didn’t cover enough skin.

Not only is Serena Williams one of the best athletes, she’s also one of the most beautiful, according to People. But it appears the magazine retouched her pic.
