Depressing. I notice they also feel the need to call her Miss Roche. Because obviously, readers need to know her marital status.

Also, am I correct in thinking she was required to prove she could do it again (which she did on 2nd attempt) while it was simply assumed that all the men could. Of course. Ugh.

She certainly wasn't required to prove she could do it again (unless I missed something ridiculous)

I'm going to guess she recreated it for some tv show or journalist if that took place.

I don't remember hearing anything about her being asked to do it again

What was the third place. Scorer wearing? Did it match his eyes?

This type of journalism is so pervasive that I doubt they even notice any more. It just tumbles from their brains to the keyboard without a single thought.

Even dh commented on how sexist this coverage has been.
