"Again. Thank you Charlie Tanks Jason so this is a fun story you know. We're amid this era in which participation in high school sports. It's going down and so you can blame concerns about concussions or helicopter parents and you can blame those video games. We love to blame video games but the numbers don't lie there. Stark across the board participation in high school sports is down region a region across the United States except in a few specific instances instances and my colleague. Rachel Bockman at the Wall Street Journal has found one girls wrestling. That's right at a time. When participation in high school boys he's wrestling is flat going down? Girls wrestling is booming. It grew by close to thirty percent last year alone. Half the states in the country are going going to have girls wrestling tournament this year. So I asked come on with asset only a game to tell us about this delightfully surprising story. Rachel thanks for being here. Great Beer Jason. First of all how did you learn about this. WHO's your Radebe wrestling contact? Well I've always loved to track trends In sports and especially at high school sports. That's when most Americans get exposed to them really get involved and I saw the numbers of girls wrestling and I had to rub my eyes because they're just so counter to all the other trends so they've always been young women who've come for high school wrestling however they've been told all right you got to be on the boys team woman. That's not the most hospitable environment right. It's not it's downright awkward and of course we're talking about teenagers right great. Who are squaring off against each other at the most awkward time of their lives? That's been less than ideal. And there've been controversies. I mean there've been situations right where you've had girls wrestlers who have a computer with boys boys who are so unwilling to wrestle them that they forfeit matches in fact just last winter in Colorado. The State Tournament amount of boy refused to wrestle. Two girls he was on track to wrestle against and he he cited personal and religious reasons for doing that and those girls ended up finishing shing fourth and fifth and the state in the boys state tournament so that shows one the lingering stigma of wrestling and squirrels for some boys and also that there are girls who still stick in there and Russell against boy. It's sure of course. So but we're talking about here. Is this momentum with girl specific teams and and where is is coming out of their state or region of the country that has really embraced this and pushed. There've been some groups like Russell like girl and profit that's really pushed this and use wrestling. It really recently has advocated for schools to add teams and for States to add state tournaments but Texas and Hawaii. We're really the pioneers. They had girls state tournaments in the late ninety s and that was even before women's wrestling was added to the Olympics. which was in two thousand four as you mentioned high school sports in general are really stagnating so any potential area of growth schools have to look at and also boys wrestling for various reasons has sort of Abdin flowed and adding girls team can really bolster the boys program? That's interesting so you're saying that when you have this healthy girls team and actually creates a situation where more boys are going for the boys team. I mean everyone wants to be sort of in the place to be right. And so the the more athletes on team like more exciting. It is for everybody now. You note in the story that is taken quite a while for schools to figure at this out but this is not a case of title nine happening and everyone just throwing together a girls wrestling team. We are more than a generation removed from that. What was the delay all about here? That's a great question. It really was chicken and egg situation. Where girls teams didn't exist because none of girls came out to justify them and then girls weren't comfortable coming out for high school wrestling because there weren't separate girls teams and it really did take some advocacy groups and you say wrestling to say? Hey we've got to stop the cycle and really create some places for girls to go. There are a couple of references in the story to kind of old male. You know attitudes about this idea like we can't let girls wrestle. What are you talking about? Did you encounter much of that when you were doing this. Yeah absolutely this is a very old Relatively conservative sport for instance there's a longtime volunteer and wrestling dad and Indiana who said his daughter wanted Russell and he really balked at that wrestlers as hard nosed ingredients. Not The things he saw in his daughter but after she started you know he acquiesced in. He's our confidence. Go Up and You know her will to succeed and she became more decisive and she got good at it and he just did a one eighty he so all these benefits absolutely and you know of course it was still wrestling. I think that was the other thing. It's SORTA demystified that you know. He thought maybe this is going to be a totally foreign form of this more I. It's it's still wrestling. We'll boundaries are dropping across combat sports. It seems we see with mixed martial arts and certainly in women's boxing there are getting to be big name sometimes uh-huh household names from those sports and these were sports that you know less than a decade ago said we'd never ever do this in a million years. Things have changed really quickly. And of course you know with the speed of the Internet and social media. There's a whole generation girls who are seeing that and these things are just normal for them now and I imagine there's no substitute for actually Lee seeing it in action and I'm sure you've got the opportunity to watch them high school girls wrestling. And what is the atmosphere like. I mean it's very similar. You know a lot of the times the meats coexist slake state tournaments are held in place. So there's a lot of the same kinds of energy and remember you know MOMS and dads. They have girls and boys of course and so a lot of them have one kid on one team and one kid and another so because it is such a tight knit sport. There really isn't less and less this sort of harsh division between the girls and boys I have a son and a a daughter and they can both out wrestle me now and both under ten sadly for me What happens to women wrestlers competing after high school when they WANNA go compete at the next level collegiate wrestling as far as I can tell? It's not a sanction. NC double a sport as men's wrestling is that's right it's not an official sport that NC holds a championship for but that is starting to change a committee at the NCAA actually voted to make it an emerging sport which essentially means it's up next to become official and of course there for many many women in college in fact in many places there's more women than men in so many colleges want more sports that women can participate and so they're welcoming new sports certainly only with open arms. It wasn't that long ago that the Olympics were considering getting rid of wrestling which sort of unimaginable considering. It was one of the original Olympic sports awards. But it's back now. Is it safe. Yeah I think it is safe and it was really shocking was cut from the Olympics and it never to be clear it never actually really missed it Olympic Games but it was going to be dropped for running twenty believe it or not these first games that there was no wrestling right. The International Olympic Committee really wanted to send a message to wrestling wrestling than needed to have kind of clear rules and more exciting format and it also needed to include women more. I think they're gonNA find particularly with Japan being so strong strong in women's wrestling that this is really a popular sport. The Tokyo Games are there lessons here. Rachel bigger lessons about the ways. That Women's sports can be expanded. Yeah Yeah I think one is having role models you know although the girls. I talked to didn't bring her up. Specifically I think the fame of Ronda Rousey and or MMA stars stars are normalized the idea that women girls could do combat sports and win with aggression and lose with grace. And you know all these things that boys and.

"Generate gate, revenues that equals or exceeds the men is important to their equal pay lawsuit. It's a story by Rachel bockman at the Wall Street Journal who's with us today from France covering the US women at the World Cup, Rachel set this up. US soccer, the US lockup automation, made in response to the pay equity lawsuits that US team was, hey, the reason why one reason why then than women's players are paid differently is because they have different revenue streams. I looked at the fight nations over the gutter Asians own records and discovered that over the last three years in total, the women have actually had more revenue from their games, mainly ticket revenue than the men's team, which is surprising. Of course. The women won the World Cup and twenty fifteen in that provided a boost and really vaulted them into parody with the men in recent years. So important to remember this is only one revenue stream. But the other I've made streams are a really not broken out by men and women. So it's very difficult to tell which team generates what and which team generates. Other amounts. So is that why it's not so simple as the women being able to come forward and say, listen, we, we pulled in more money from ticket revenue pass the same released. We win the men don't do anything, right? It's still complicated on date. Receipts are only one measure of revenue on US. Soccer also sells broadcast rights, the US men's and women's games, but also sponsorships to companies like, Nike and Budweiser. But it sounds those in bundles. And so when Mickey for instance is sponsoring. Yeah. Soccer, it's not sponsoring just the men or the women sponsoring the whole federation, you know, Nike might decide to use women more often than its ads for instance, they in a one Cup here and that we pick just maybe the women carry more value, you know, men qualified for the twenty eighteen World Cup.
