Overall, all athletes must have dedication and determination to leave everything behind to achieve their dream. Becoming a professional athlete.
Yet, for female athletes is harder when it comes to family. Yes, as we stated, they leave everything behind to achieve their dream, but once they are professional they want to have a family. For male athletes it’s easier to take a days/weeks/months off to see the birth of their child. Yet, women have to take off more time to give birth to their child, plus recovery and maternity time. While male athletes can return to their top fitness within days.
Female athletes do have more disadvantages when becoming professional, than male athletes. Yet, they are able to handle it and most of the time with less pay too.
