From multisport athletes to dominating specialists, women have contributed so much to sports. For so long, women were discouraged to participate in sports because it was deemed too rough on their bodies. Fortunately, there are women who continue to break the mold, redefining what dominance looks like and breaking glass ceilings for others.

We at the Tylt want to honor the women who trailblazed and carved out their place on the top, even in the face of adversity. Let us know who you think is the greatest female athlete ever!

Every athlete strives to be a winner and no one has done that more in the WNBA than Diana Taurasi. Yes, she has scored the most points of anyone in the league, but it's her winning ways that really separate her from the rest. She won three straight NCAA Championships with UConn, captured three WNBA titles and earned four Olympic gold medals.

She was never the biggest player, but she was a goliath on any court she stepped on. There aren't many athletes who have won as much as she has. 

#TeamMarta

It's no surprise that the same country that gave the world Pelé, one of the greatest soccer players ever, would also be the birthplace of the best female player. Marta has spent 19 years schooling the entire sport with her creativity and jaw-dropping goals. She has the most goals in the Women's World Cup history and has scored 110 international goals. Her greatness has been recognized by FIFA as well, winning World Player of the Year five times.

In the most popular sport in the world, no one stands taller on the women's side than Marta.
