10 takeaways from Week 10

  10 takeaways from Week 10 Sunday Rundown recaps the most important developments from the day's action and examines the significance of those events moving forward. Murray-Hopkins magic Where else to begin than with Kyler Murray, DeAndre Hopkins, and the Hail Mary that lifted the Arizona Cardinals past the Buffalo Bills in what promised to be the most fun game of the weekend? That thrilling finish - as wild and improbable as it was - was really just the nightcap to another outstanding performance by Murray, Hopkins, and the Cardinals. They’ve now won four of their last five and have scored at least 30 points in all five of those games.

Participating in sports teaches women leadership skills, and bolsters their self-esteem and self-worth.

Among many leadership roles within Canada Soccer, Moscato serves as commissioner of the League1 Ontario Women's Division and aims to be responsible for creating pro opportunities for female players within the league.

Although another milestone was made for professional women in sport this year, McPeak believes that shouldn't be the case.

"It's 2020, we should not be making firsts," said McPeak, who calls games for both the WNBA's Washington Mystics and the Capital City Gogo, the G League affiliate of the Washington Wizards.

"Knowing my job and what I do with the NBA umbrella, we still don't have a full-time female play-by-play announcer, which is crazy to me."

Elevating women into leadership roles

For Scott, a two-time soccer bronze medallist, awareness is a key issue for promoting current athletes into leadership roles.

"We need to educate more on what's available," Scott said. "We're just as capable of filling those roles and just as passionate. It's about encouragement and the knowledge of seeing it.

"You start to think about the potential for you as a woman."

Only 28 per cent of women fill athletic director roles in post-secondary institutions in Canada. At the U Sports level, just three per cent of women have coaching roles on the men's side as compared to 26 per cent on the women's.

'It also falls on media coverage'

Bingham, who represented Canada in track and field at the Rio 2016 Games, believes having a larger number of women in leadership roles affects more than just today's current generation of athlete.

"I think if we have more women in positions of power you get different perspectives," Bingham said. "You're going to have a lot more athletes who are more comfortable and happy in an environment, who are going to stay there.

"We can increase the participation for female athletes."

The 26-year-old believes increased media attention on women's athletics could be consequential in achieving balance.

"It also falls on media coverage — we need more coverage in women's sports," the sprinter said. "In track and field we're so quick to know who the fastest man in the world is. When it comes to the female side it isn't the same. If we have more people understand our stories and be role models to young girls, it could make a difference."
