Ronda Rousey talked about Gina Carano’s ‘big titties’

Large breasts can be a hindrance for female athletes and according to Ronda Rousey, former MMA’er Gina Carano did wonders with her fantastic rack. “Gina Carano was an amazing fighter, and she had a fantastic rack,” Rousey said. But then again: “You don’t see big titties in the Olympics, and I think that’s for a reason.” The quote came in an ESPNW piece about breasts in sports and the toll it can take both physically and mentally on players.

It’s a fascinating read, focusing on woman who have had trouble with their large breasts. One athlete in particular, Simona Halep, had breast reduction surgery (she was a 34DD) because it affected her tennis swing. It’s made quite a difference in her career as she’s won back-to-back titles in 2013 and is currently ranked 30th in the world. She went from a player many considered a walkover to defeating the likes of Svetlana Kuznetsova, Agnieszka Radwańska and Jelena Janković.

What does this mean for female athletes going forward? Who knows. There are women who perform quite well with large breasts—Natalie Gulbis, Sania Mirza, Serena Williams among others. But Halep’s success may give others a reason to explore a surgical alternative.
