Question Sports where Women are better than Men

I think it's pretty obvious that Women do many things better than Men, yet when it comes to sports, It seems that Men have the upper hand even in areas where physical strength in not needed (like billiards, bowling).

I've been trying to think of sports where Women are better (or equal) to Men and so far I have none.

Anyone care to help?

Re: Sports where Women are better than Men

Is washing the dishes a sport? [only joking... ]

They are probably better at Netball...men don't play it so women must be better

Re: Sports where Women are better than Men

Not to be snippy, but what difference does it make? And what things are there that women so obviously do better than men?

I lack direction.

Chocking makes me sad.

I was just trying to figure out, why it's so hard for me to think of any of these sports (where women are better).
I play billiards a lot, and there are many women who play, some of them are real good, but when you look at the pros, it seems that the men have the edge, I'm just curious as to why..... (it's not the strength of shots)

This is not an attempt at a Chauvinistic thread, just to see if there are sports that I'm not aware of where Women have the edge.

As for other things Women do better than Men, I can think of quite a few, but I'll leave that to another thread.

Seriously.

And on-topic: Ultramarathons. --At distances beyond 26 miles (and I don't know the distance, 50 miles...100 miles...) a woman's greater percentage of body fat allows her a greater reservoir of energy. (Remember that the mile is a sprint, and anything under that distance as well. Also, please remember that sprints are anerobic, and rely on stored muscle energy: the mesomorphic types generally should win.)

However, menarche (absence of periods)[sp.?] sets in, [even with sports like tennis,--] soooo, what's really to be benefitted by these, contrived? sports, like Triathalons, Ultra-marathons....

Equestrian sports, maybe? (Not better, but equal.)
