Aside from the USA Women's team breaking / setting about 30 records during the 2019 Women's World Cup, ladies in sport had a phenomenal year in sport:

some highlights:

- Kenya’s Brigid Kosgei has etched her name into the history books of sport with one of the greatest running performances ever.. Kosgei smashed the women’s marathon record held for 16-years by Paula Radcliffe by more than a minute, recording a time of two hours 14 minutes 04 seconds at the 2019 Chicago Marathon

-  Two-time Olympic champion Claressa Shields became the undisputed women’s middleweight world boxing champion
-  22 year American Simone Biles became the most decorated gymnast in history in 2019
-  On 12 July 2019, Hassan entered mile run at the Herculis meet in Fontvieille, Monaco where she broke an almost 23-year-old world record.with her final time of 4:12:33.
-  The opening weekend derby game between rivals Manchester City and Manchester United  (the first time the two sides had ever met) had attendance of in excess of 31,000 people.
-  Golfer Jin Young Ko’s sealed an incredible feat in the golf history books. The South Korean ended a streak of going 114 holes without hitting a single bogey at the 2019 Cambia Portland Classic


Then of course just the other day darts player Fallon Sherrock made history when she became the first woman to triumph over a male player at a darts world championship on Tuesday evening.
