There was an interesting article in today’s USA Today about 37-year old Amy Acuff who will be making her fifth appearance in the Olympics. According to the article, “At 37, the high jumper says she feels better than ever. She retired after the 2009 world championships and gave birth to her daughter, Elsa, who is now 2. ‘It’s kind of a poorly kept secret that a lot of times after you have a baby you actually come back better than before,’ says Acuff, a six-time outdoor national champion. ‘I don’t know exactly why that is.’” I think I can shed some light on this for you, Amy. There’s a high correlation between an athlete’s feelings of self-worth (self-esteem) and performance. And having a baby not only enhances the mother’s self-esteem, but she’s also happy and her life is in harmony. it would not be surprising to see Amy bring home the gold.

Those of you who follow women in boxing know the names of daughters of some of our most famous fighters: Laila Ali, Jaqui Frazier and Freeda Foreman. But in the May 7, 2012 issue of The New Yorker there was an excellent article about young women, especially African-American women, who have taken up boxing in an attempt to improve their quality of life and the quality of life for their families. One of these young women is named Claressa Shields and she was expected to win a gold medal in the London Olympics. And she did.  I highly recommend this article for those of you who are interested in boxing.
