Not sure when you wrestled but as a whole women’s wrestling has come a long way in the past 10-15 years. One of the fundamental differences between gender performance isn’t just physiological differences but access. There are limited opportunities for woman to compete, train, and have access to the best coaches as compared to men. Therefore, they don’t develop as well. That has changed considerably. Just as wrestlers in Pennsylvania dominate the wrestling landscape-Not because they are special humans but because that’s where the best resources and participation tends to be.

A cursory search of objective performance measures indicates the best women in track and swimming have times similar to average college men. Furthering that point it wouldn’t be outside the realm of possibility if the USA women’s soccer team put a beating on Division 1 JV men’s teams. 

If we look at combat sports, would it be so outrageous to suggest Amanda Nunes, Holly Holm, Valentina Shevchenko, or even prime Rhonda Rousey could beat up on a average male fighter in the regional circuit? Seems very possible to me. 

The women’s 100m track Olympic Champion would have placed 4th in the Illinois high school boys state meet, using her time from the Olympic Finals.

 

Do you really think she had less access to running track as compared to a high schooler?

I know a 16u boys soccer coach that’s pretty adamant they were beating the USWNT as well.

Link on USWNT put a beating on college JV teams? I supplied a link of them being absolutely handled by a team of high school freshmen boys.  Boys from a premier team, but still high school freshmen.

Kayla Miracle said something about Brands questioning whether people were in the HWC for the right reasons.  Maybe the ladies expressed loyalty to Mark Perry and it is as simple as that.

Also Miracle made it seem as if the Iowa room was mentally and physically demanding for the women and there was some question as to how many women on the national team could actually survive.
