By admin - March 31, 2021

With women’s history month coming to a close, we should certainly honor the ladies who’ve been going above and beyond in their respective fields. From athletic prowess, business, and even the coaching side of things, they’ve stepped it up. Here are 5 women to dominate sports for the next decade. 

  • Nicole Lynn: She’s an agent and attorney to become the first Black woman to represent a top-three NFL draft pick. She wanted to find the right players who deserved their chance to play sports. She didn’t know that her job description was a sports agent because this was a title reserved for males. She’s done a great job in helping athletes retain their wealth. 
  • Jemele Hill: She’s already a veteran in her field through years of co-hosting Sportscenter. She’s now hosting a show on Vice called “Cari & Jemele (Won’t) Stick to Sports.” The podcast not only talks about sports but it brings an uplifting presence especially in women.
  • Michele Roberts: Roberts is the executive director of the National Basketball Players Association. Although she announced she was getting ready to retire in 2020, the pandemic put her in a different direction. She played a huge role in the NBA successfully playing during the pandemic and putting in proper protocols to keep players safe.
  • Sarah Thomas: At the age of 47, Thomas has become the first female Super Bowl official. Her excellent officiating skills led her to become one of the most prominent sports figures and an inspiration to young girls everywhere. 
  • Naomi Osaka: The young tennis champion has already accomplished so much in her career at the age of 23. She uses her celebrity to bring awareness to racial inequality and advocates for different communities. It’ll be interesting to see where her career takes her on and off the field.
