Inspirational Sports Quotes From Five Great Female Athletes

  1. 1. Inspirational sports quotes from 5 great female athletes
  2. 2. Inspirational sports quotes prove the truth of the old adage – the blow that doesn’t break you, strengthens you. There are some great fitness motivation apps out there but sometimes a few words can spur you on to pursue your dreams, so here goes…
  3. 3. #1 Chris Evert born 1954, American tennis player “I was very, very shy as a younger girl, just petrified of people. Tennis helped give me an identity and made me feel like somebody.”
  4. 4. #2 Mia Hamm born 1972, American soccer player “Somewhere behind the athlete you’ve become and the hours of practice and the coaches who have pushed you is a little girl who fell in love with the game and never looked back… play for her.”
  5. 5. #3 Zola Budd, born 1966, South African athlete “There were always a couple of loonies who caused all the trouble.” The South African athlete “ran” into a maelstrom of controversy when her grandfather’s British nationality enabled her to compete in the 1984 Olympics. In that sense, Budd was a loonie. And with so much to put up against, she did miracles!
  6. 6. #4 Nadia Comăneci, born 1961, Romanian gymnast “I don’t run away from a challenge because I am afraid. Instead, I run toward it because the only way to escape fear is to trample it beneath your feet.”
  7. 7. #5 Virginia Wade, born 1945, British tennis player “It’s only when it comes to crunch time that people’s true character comes out.”
  8. 8. Unleash your “girl power” and prove to the world what a fighter you are!
