The Games of Heraby Lady Goo Goo Sports Reporter, Monday 28th May 2012

Lady Goo Goo -Sport Reporter

Throughout time many stories have been told of girls’ participation in sport. These stories have entered the cultural heritage of a people. Sometimes those stories have been limiting to the encouragement of girls into sport.

One of the greatest stories of women participating in sport, goes back to the great Ancient Olympics. Women and girls did not participate in these games, although they did have their own festival dedicated to the Goddess, Hera, the wife of Zues who was the head man at the Ancient Games.

Participating in the Heraean Games back in ancient days was a big motivator for me to drive the Galaxic Women’s Sport Foundation. Although it was great to be able to participate, there were some very strange rules back then.

A committee of 16 women from a cities of Elis organised the event. Like the ancient Olympics, the event was conducted every 4 years.

The goddess, Hera

Every year the Heraean Games were held, a peplos or a robe was woven and presented to the great Goddess, Hera and placed in her temple.

Girls competed in 3 age groups in only 3 separate foot races the length of the chariot’s racecourse, but less distance than the men.  It was known as the “Maiden’s Footrace” in honor of the goddess, Hera.  The winners received Olive crowns, just like the  Olympic victors and a share of the cow sacrificed to Hera.

One of the conditions to compete was that the girls who participated were not allowed to be married. If a married woman was found to have competed she was  “barred on penalty of death from the sanctuary of Zues on the days of the athletic competition for boys and men.”  Legend also has it that women and girls were not permitted to watch the men and boys events.

This ban was a key motivator to establish, in another universe outside of Earth, the Inter Galatical Girls Warrior Sports Foundation. I’ll write more on this foundation in future posts:)  I will also be covering the concept of music and sport in future articles

As a background, take a look at these videos:

Rosetta Stella, Planet Girlo’s Media mogul, announced today that she has linked in with Paper.li to create a new music magazine,  Astro Joey and The Cosmic Rays Music

I’m delighted to expand circulation of the band’s news through Paper.li” she said from her Galaxic Headquarters. It will assist in expanding circulation into regional and remote Galaxies, which is important to the band, for the girls do not want isolated communities to be left out of the fun”

Rosetta Stella: Planet Girlon Media Mogul

Ms Rosetta Stella’s Blue Galaxy Network is still to be rolled out to the far outer regions of the universes. Although there are varied cultures and languages across the universe and galaxies, Ms Stella believes that the music publication can break down such barriers, as she considers that “music alone is a universal langauge” A philosophy that is held strong by the band as well.

The current access to the Blue Galaxy network is restricted in the outer regions for some planets, such as near Pluto. Spokeswoman for Pluto, Little Pluto, said that she was “over her four moons about the news, as it has been a difficult time for Pluto since being demoted as a Planet”.
