Women with swords...without the chainmail bikini.

For everyone out there who says that a woman cannot compete on equal footing with a man, please take a look here. At the Harcourt Park World Invitational Jousting Tournament in New Zealand, Sarah Hay was 1st in jousting and 2nd overall by points. This was not in the ladies jousting competition – there was no his and hers jousting. Sarah competed at something that takes skill and courage and training.

I’d say she deserves respect. What do you think?
