What a great article

This is such a refreshing read - women in the media are so often objectified or merely ignored, that the Olympic coverage is a pleasure to view. Nobody is asking what they're wearing, what matters is their achievements and hard work. Awesome.

Should be ok now, it's also the front article on the Guardian lifestyle page, I believe.

Fabulous article. Thanks for that.

Glad you liked it, it felt like a good antidote to so much of the media coverage of women in general, and athletes in particular.
