Black women in sport by Tina Sloan Green( Book )

2 editions published in 1981 in English and held by 248 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

An overview of the achievements of black women in sports is presented in this collection of essays, biographical sketches, and philosophical investigations. The work is divided into five chapters, the first of which focuses on prejudice (racial and sexual), absence of black women as subjects in the research base, work/home/family pressures, black sports competency as "natural," and other myths and realities of the involvement of women in black sports. Chapter 2 presents biographical sketches of 17 outstanding black sportswomen, detailing athletic achievements, honors and awards, career and educational experiences, affiliations, and personal statements. Chapter 3 presents solutions to the issues of sport participation disparities between blacks and whites, the problem of prejudice, the need for consciousness raising among blacks, and the necessity for whites to be aware of and resolve their racial prejudice. Chapter 4 presents a cross-cultural study of Nigerian women in sport, an attempt to seek the African roots of black sportswomen. Chapter 5 presents two philosophically based arguments; the first, an examination of characteristics of master/slave relationships and the need to abolish such relationships. The second speculates about the positive and negative aspects of the future of black women in sports. (Mjb)

Sports medicine meets synchronized swimming by National Association for Girls & Women in Sport( Book )

5 editions published in 1980 in English and French and held by 188 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This collection of articles contains information about synchronized swimming. Topics covered include general physiology and cardiovascular conditioning, flexibility exercises, body composition, strength training, nutrition, coach-athlete relationships, coping with competition stress and performance anxiety, and eye care. Chapters are included on common orthopedic problems affecting synchronized swimmers. The psychological aspects of elite women synchronized swimmers are also discussed. A comprehensive study of the anatomy of the shoulders and knees of synchronized swimmers is appended. The writings reflect the current trend in sports medicine to go beyond the concept of a team physician who cares for the injured athlete; rather, the emphasis is on the total physical and psychological health and well-being of the athlete.
