Now that my look back at female Olympic athletes I had featured before is done, as we go into September, I am twelve new subjects away - a mere dozen - from having featured one thousand different women on this blog. So that's it - twelve more women, and that's it for this blog's first decade.
And can you guess who the one thousandth woman will be? Well, I've chosen her, but I'm not telling you at this moment. Feel free to guess by leaving a comment on this post, but I'm not revealing who it is until September 24, when the revelatory post appears. You'll just have to wait.
But I'm sure you'll like the other eleven women I've chosen for the coming month.
