At the end of last night’s Olympic broadcast, it was announced that of the 34 gold medals won by the U.S. so far, 23 of them had been collected by women. USA Today looks at how women are dominating the Games.
It’s something I’ve noticed as well. Women are winning the high-profile games, matches and races. They’re also getting a lot of TV airplay. There are always two TVs broadcasting the Olympics at my gym. One is tuned to NBC, and the other, NBC Sports Network. Most days during these Games, both TVs are featuring women’s matchups for a good portion of the day. And both women and men stand around to watch.
