Teen Tennis Star's Success Is A Powerful Argument Against Body-Shaming

Teen Tennis Star's Success Is A Powerful Argument Against Body-Shaming

Commented May 30, 2014 at 20:57:38 in Black Voices

“One win means little - you seem unaware a sequence of victories is necessary to win a tournament. Her win over Cornet was on an unusually cool day, and her opponent played a strategically naive game.
Townsend got a drubbing today - she needs a disciplined coach to get her into shape like Lendl physically transformed Murray and turned him into a winner. If Townsend doesn't get into better shape, her career is going to be disappointing and brief.”

“This has little to do with fat-shaming. If she wants to make the best of her talent, she needs to increase her fitness to endure long matches. It's a no-brainer - carrying extra pounds on hot days is a handicap which will cost her victories. The women's circuit is now very competitive - most of her opponents are superlatively fit.”

Trebot on May 30, 2014 at 13:38:11

“I'm sure the 21st ranked player who lost to her was superlatively fit. The weight didn't seem to cost Townsend anything. How do you make a statement like this with the reality right in front of your face?”

“Take a look at Spain's architecture, Cervantes' literary contributions, Velasquez' paintings, Rodrigo's music, St Teresa's writings on mysticism. If your idea of civilization is America's game show culture, then Spain's refinements might be beyond your comprehension.”

“It's crucial to make the transition gradually - while building up the calf muscles.
Otherwise - problems. But then shin splints from heel striking are also problematic.”

“You don't have a clue what you're talking about. Firstly, nobody runs with a 'horizontal' torso angle.
Secondly, you're apparently unaware that East Africans have been dominating marathons for a number of years after learning to run long distances on the balls of their bare feet. That has always been the natural way for humans to run - until athletic shoes with cushioned heels arrived on the scene.”

“I'm beginning to suspect The Onion operates some school for satirical journalism - and Fox keeps hiring their graduates, believing them to be real journalists?
The same campus must be producing many of the GOP politicians like Palin - and the Republican party is making the same mistake as Fox.
It's the only explanation for all this nonsense - and it's time for The Onion to let everybody in on the joke.”

“If you're going to run in the 'new' way, there's little point in lugging around conventional running shoes' extra cushioning which isn't going to be used. Our natural laziness will also lead us to revert to old heel-first habits in the conventionals. Try that in VFFs and it's going to hurt.
In addition I suspect the way the ball of the foot spreads out on impact in the VFF shoes is an additional cushioning benefit, but don't know this for sure. I do know that toe-less minimalist shoes don't seem to work as well.
Perhaps that answers your query.”

“I'm pretty happy with my 5 Fingers and don't see them as a scam - they encourage running on the balls of the feet rather than striking with ground with the heel - which is the healthiest method for high mileage training as the Africans have shown.
That said - anybody who uses them for this purpose probably needs to make the transition gradually
They are also excellent for swimming off rocks and stony beaches.”

“That's nice. Maybe next time vibram will just sell their new product. And not make claims of medical breakthroughs.”

MjborLA on May 22, 2014 at 15:51:00

“You know "balls of feet" vs "heel" running is just short vs long distance running... right? It has to do with the angle of your torso. No one can sustain a horizontal torso running posture for long distances... they stand up straight and that's why their heel strikes 1st. Whoever sold you this "wisdom" is not a runner.”

Craig Schultz on May 22, 2014 at 10:25:25

“They also make excellent "deck shoes" on a boat, especially in heavy weather as well as being worn underneath scuba diving fins to prevent chaffing.”

Ditchmonkey on May 22, 2014 at 10:12:53

“I'm afraid this is an issue the general public will just never understand. I'll say it again but I'm afraid it's pointless: the issue here is with the way Vibram marketed the benefits of the shoe, not with the shoe itself or the fundamental concepts of barefoot running.”

Luke Dreckman on May 22, 2014 at 08:40:08

“Me too, I never ran before because my knees would hurt after a while. When I switched to the 5 fingers I changed my style of running and my knees dont hurt even after 5 miles.”

“It's not a great business - it's a cartel. If they had to pay for the health costs, the NFL would be bankrupt.

“Most therapists would agree Fred Koch was an abusive parent. The victims of abuse frequently become abusers themselves, and Koch Industries is certainly an abusive corporation as it poisons the environment with its irresponsible behavior.
This story is good reason why wealthy individuals should not be allowed to use their money to exert undue electoral influence. Campaign finance laws need to be changed before the Kochs take humanity's only home planet beyond the brink.”

“Nothing tastes better than well-prepared vegetables. The secret is freshness and to avoid over-cooking - along with seasoning and a touch of garlic in many cases.
Our taste buds have been corrupted by junk food. Just as nobody loves their first taste of alcohol or coffee, we need to cultivate a taste for vegetables. Before too long, you'll find nothing beats the taste of a side dish of lightly sauteed spinach or roasted brussel sprouts.”
