Columbus, Ohio- The approximate 22,000 plus athletes that attended the 31st annual Arnold Sports Festival proved one fact , sports is universally loved and embraced by athletes of all ages and sexes. The old  adage of ” You throw a ball like a girl ”  is not considered an insult but a compliment because these girls were some of the toughest competitors I have ever met.
