I'm not aware of any female "sport figures".
I'm a sports fan, but only football and baseball. I have the unfortunate privilege of being a Cubs and Rams fan, arguably the two most hated teams in St. Louis that also can't win to save their lives. I have no utility whatsoever for basketball (save for march madness gambling), tennis, soccer, hockey, UFC, etc.
I don't really "play" any sports any more. I used to play football and loved it. I just run a lot now. I play golf sometimes but that's more about drinking in nice weather.
