Whitewater Woman Kills the Kayaker Stereotype
She feels the fear, but for female kayaker Maranda Stopol, the water spraying in her face means nothing. The rapids beneath her only drive her on.
This female athlete and extreme kayaker is out to answer the question, “if boys can do that, why can’t I?”
Stopol faces more than the raging rivers or fast-moving currents. She confronts the stereotypes that women have come to accept.
“You flip through a magazine and see images of guys doing rad stuff and the first woman is shown in a spa scene,” Stopol comments in the video.
She wants to change that perception and impress upon the world the value and unique qualities that women athletes bring to the table.
Stopol is an inspiration to all women athletes.
