For the first time in the history of the Olympic games, there are more U.S. Women competing than men., And even more groundbreaking for the first time in Olympic history. Every participating nation is sending women athletes to London, including Saudia Arabia, which has women on its Olympic team for the very first time. Less than 20 years ago at the 1996 Atlanta games, 26 countries didn’t send any women competitors. On the U.S. Team, there are plenty of women to watch. From first time Olympian Missy Franklin, who could be another Michael Phelps, to three-time Olympic medalist Allyson Felix, to gymnastics gold medal favorites teenagers Jordyn Wieber and Gabby Douglas. These women -- and their female Olympic competitors -- teach our little girls that boys aren’t the only ones who can reach the greatest heights in sports.
