Olympic weightlifter Sarah Robles is literally the strongest woman in the United States, but she can barely get by because she doesn’t have the backing of a major company.
Maybe companies only want to sponsor female athletes whose bodies fit into what they’d like to package as perfect. Maybe weight lifting isn’t considered the “sexiest” sport in the Olympics. But Sarah is the best in her field, and she deserves a smart sponsor.
Sarah deserves a living wage, and girls deserve all different types of role models to look up to. Tell Nike to step up and sponsor Sarah Robles.
