Even though Katie’s was the bigger achievement and she actually won her race her success was overlooked by Michael Phelps’s who didn’t even win his race. However, this is not the only example of a females sporting achievement being over-shadowed.

Often times after loss, “mourners are unable [to] regain a sense of normal, functioning life without their object of loss,” (McClinton-Temple). A successful stage of acceptance, however, helps in allowing the mourner to move on. Jack first begins to accept his daughter’s death when he attends “the first impromptu memorial in the cornfield...yearly now, he organized a memorial,” (Sebold 223). These memorials provide a sense of closure for him, and after the memorials, he no longer hunts down Mr. Harvey or complains to the police, but simply accepts that his daughter is gone. The point where Jack truly moves towards acceptance occurs when he sees the daffodils in the hospital and says “‘It’s Susie’s flower.’ My father smiled beautifully,” (280).

“Tom Brady is the gifted quarterback of the New England Patriots, widely recognized as one of the best in his positions. But in the late 1980’s and early 90’s his mom and dad didn’t allow Tom to play organized youth tackle football because of high risk injuries in youth football”(Hyman). Due to these high risk injuries, parents have been debating whether or not their child under twelve should be playing youth tackle football. For example, Cam’ron Matthews played on Alto Texas youth football team and sadly died after a hard hit to his brain in October. Children under the age of twelve should not be allowed to play tackle football because these kids are not developed enough yet to understand the concept of the game, they are at a higher risk of injuries, and they aren’t mature enough yet to be playing youth tackle football.
