Taylor Townsend Too Fat To Play Tennis
According to an article published by the dailymail.co.uk, Taylor Townsend, the number one junior tennis player in the world, is too fat to play tennis. The article reports the 16 year old was asked to slim down by the U.S. Tennis Association because they are concerned about her long term health.
In addition her mother paid all the expenses to bring Taylor to the U.S. Open after the USTA developmental program refused to fund her trip.
It’s disturbing that the USTA would put more emphasis on the teen’s body than her obvious talent. Is it more important that we encourage sportsmanship and developing the players or what they look like? One should not have anything to do with the other.
What do you think?
