What does a female athlete look like? She has rippling muscles. She is as light as a gazelle. She is petite. She is husky. She can run for miles, lift hundreds of pounds, explode off a starting block, twirl in the air. She is beautiful. In 1994, journalist Jane Gottesman began trying to answer that question her own way. She contacted newspapers, college archives, sports magazines and museums, asking for pictures of women participating in sports. The results of her search go on display today through Jan. 2 at the Smithsonian Institution.

Let's start with facts: Two members of the Russian women's 4x400-meter relay team, Kseniya Ryzhova and Tatyana Firova, kissed on the podium after their team won gold Saturday at the World Athletics Championship in Moscow. The smooch sparked a huge response, with many on Twitter and in several media outlets (especially Spanish-language ones, judging by my search last night) framing it as a protest against Russia's "gay propaganda" law. It may have been a stand of solidarity with the LGBT community.

Jessica Long has had to overcome obstacles all of her life. The field she had to beat out to win an ESPY on Wednesday night for the Best Female Athlete with a Disability was a tough one, filled with some remarkable athletes. Long, who had to have her legs amputated when she was just 18 months old in Russia where she was born, triumphed once again, winning the award for the second time. The swimmer is the second repeat winner in the award's history. Long grew up in Middle River after emigrating from Russia.

I stood in front of associate professor Barbara Osborne's sports law class at the University of North Carolina last week. The subject was the seldom-talked-about disparity of power and privilege between black and white women in the sports industry. The timing was fitting. This year is the 35th anniversary of Title IX, the congressional legislation that prohibits discrimination on the basis of sex in any educational program that receives federal financial assistance. A week earlier, hundreds attended a convention in Cleveland, the site of the women's basketball Final Four, to celebrate and discuss Title IX, the law that changed the sports landscape in America.

Kathy Sibiski of Bel Air has been approached several times by photographers interested in making a model out of her teenage daughter Allison. Until yesterday, Sibiski had never countenanced the idea. She worried that the slim-crazy modeling industry promotes an unhealthy body image for young women. "I didn't want her to become self-conscious," Sibiski said. But that very same mother showed up with her daughter yesterday at an open casting call for Under Armour. The Baltimore-based sports apparel maker is looking for amateur female athletes to represent the increasingly popular brand in television, magazine and in-store advertisements.

In June 1967, the Orioles wore shiny new World Series rings. Baltimore still had pro teams in basketball and ice hockey. And kids listened to pop music on transistor radios tuned to WCAO-AM. That month, The Evening Sun corralled 18 male "Prep Stars of the Week" at a restaurant atop the downtown Holiday Inn and named its first High School Athlete of the Year. Times change. On Tuesday at M&T Bank Stadium, that event will be held for the 40th time. A male and female Athlete of the Year will be selected from among The Sun's 76 weekly winners named during the school year.
