Melissa Jeanette “Missy” Franklin is a Canadian-American competitive swimmer and is a five-time Olympic gold medalist. Missy Franklin should be remembered because she swims for the USA Olympic team showing great pride representing her country in the sport that she has a tremendous love. Also she is very encouraging to young adults and kids everywhere to follow their dreams, and she also puts a stand on her thought about bullying and what you could do to stop it.

This is especially apparent in the 1970s when there were many changes in the ideals and mindsets of people all around the world, and we can observe in retrospect how these changes affected sports in that same decade. One example of an ideological shift in the mind of americans is the push for gender equality on and off the field. IN 1972, congress implemented a section known as Title IX as part of a large Education amendments act. This act forced schools nationwide to provide equal opportunities for women in athletic programs. In the years following Title IX, female participation in sports skyrocketed(Sabino 1). Money also

Because Missy doesn’t want to disappoint anyone she is always following directions. Other athletes don 't pay attention and then coaches won 't want to work with them. They don’t think any improvement will come from it. Because of Missy 's mindset her coach had stuck with her. Her good attitude throughout the sport encourages and helps her and her teammates to try to become the best athletes possible. "
Tennis From the Beginning When little baby Serena was young, she started her training at age 3 and has always loved tennis. Her family supports her so much they even play tennis. “Serena 's father used what he 'd gleaned from tennis books and videos to instruct Serena and Venus on how to play the game.

Have basketball coaches or players come in to teach, similar to wrestling, also to have basketball to be more advertised and talked about around school and at assembly.
In this exposition I am going to examine the correlation between some Sociological Theories that have been discussed this semester in Sociology of Sport and the movie “Undefeated,” a following of the 2009 Manassas High School football team. The two theories that will be of main focus are conflict and symbolic interaction. From the film, through a sociological lens the pertinent topics or issues that have been selected will examine the power struggle with upward mobility due to social stratification athletes like O.C and Money faced in college and how Chavis portrayed various reflections of the environment that he grew up in.
The relationship between technology and sports is a long and intertwined relationship.
