Helen Lenskyj says that women athletes are held to a rigid standard of heterosexual attractiveness and that this plays itself out dramatically in the Olympics. The result is that some woman athletes have even resorted to plastic surgery to fit the image. Helen Lenskyj’s most recent book is Gender Politics and the Olympic Industry.
