Messi is so good. I think he's maybe not human.

Re: Soccer - where the top men can be smaller than the top women

Well done to them both.

You also couldn't find two players with more polar opposite approaches to the game, but both are very effective.

I don't follow women's soccer real closely, but I do love me some Abby. And Messi, of course.

Re: Soccer - where the top men can be smaller than the top women

I have no problem with Abby, and it has nothing to do with my nationality, but Christine Sinclair should have won the women's.

She is also bigger than Messi.

Re: Soccer - where the top men can be smaller than the top women

Canada's Christine Sinclair (5'10", 165 lbs) is defo # 1 lady soccer player in the world.


Also consider slalom skiing where ladys champ Lindsey Vonn (5'10", 170 lbs) towers over 2012 mens champ Marcel Hirscher (5'8", 160 lbs).

Smaller guys have a tendency to exaggerate their height or lack of it. Being somewhere between 5'6" and 5'7" myself, I know from personal experience. Guys my height routinely say they are 5'8" or taller and, I guess, we can all understand why.

Re: Soccer - where the top men can be smaller than the top women

Nah, everyone exaggerates their height, or mostly everyone. I always add 1 cm (0.5 inch) to my height (181 cm I say I'm 182 ) because no one can tell a 1 cm difference, 2 cm maybe but not 1
