|The United States Soccer Federation (USSF) is missing an opportunity to make a profound statement about gender equality in sports.
On September 13 nike air max 97 offerta , veteran goalkeeper Hope Solo recorded a record-breaking 72nd shutout with the US national women's team.
This should have been a feel-good moment for everyone involved. There was only one problem: Solo set the record while awaiting a November -trial for assaulting her sister and nephew last summer.
Unfortunately, domestic violence has become a hot-button issue in American sports. NFL players Ray Rice, Adrian Peterson and Greg Hardy have all -recently been suspended pending similar trials.
Solo, however, has been -allowed to continue playing for the US national team and the Seattle Reign of the -National Women's Soccer League. Viewed in the light of the NFL players' suspensions nike air max 97 saldi , this seems like a double standard.
The irony here is that ever since Brandi Chastain's torso-baring goal at the 1999 FIFA Women's World Cup, the US national women's soccer team has been held up as a shining example of Title IX's multi--generational success.
USA Today's Christine Brennan, herself a trailblazer as a female sportswriter, asked USSF's director of communications Greg Buethe about the decision to heavily promote Solo's pursuit of the record.
"We are aware that Hope is handling a personal situation at the moment," Buethe said. "At the same time nike air max 97 scontate , she has an opportunity to set a significant record that speaks to her hard work and dedication over the years with the National Team."
There are two problems here. First of all, "personal issues" become public when law enforcement agents are called to the scene. Second, was the record in question more "significant" than the issue of -domestic violence?
Granted, such cases have proven difficult to adjudicate - as evidenced by the NFL's bungled attempts to do so. As a far less prominent organization, the USSF doesn't possess the NFL's public relations mechanisms.
Still Scarpe Puma Rihanna Pelle Creepers Bianche , it's never too late to do the right thing. If the USSF continues to let Solo play, the organization will absolutely be making a statement about -gender equality in sports - but not the statement it wants to.
SHENZHEN MSU-BIT University, the first Sino-Russian university, was officially inaugurated at its transitional campus in eastern Shenzhen yesterday morning.
