Just watching the news coverage of Libby Trickett's breaking of the world record last night in the 100m Freestyle. The male commentator goes on to talk about the swimmer who came in second in the race, just behind Trickett - Cate Campbell, a 15 year old. As he's calling it, he says "coming in swimming faster than most boys her age".
What the fuck? She came in just behind the world record holder, I'd say she probably swims faster than pretty much *everyone* on this planet. So fucking patronising - ageist and sexist all in the one go.
