** {{Subverted|Trope}} in the episode where Zoey joins the male's wrestling team. All of her male opponents choose to forfeit rather than wrestle her, because if they won, [[WouldntHitAGirl they would look like a jerk for beating up a girl]]; but if they lost, [[IWasBeatenByAGirl they would look like a wimp for losing to a girl]]. It turns out that the coach only let Zoey join the team [[GenreSavvy for this exact reason]], so that he could save his best wrestler for the final match of the tournament. His plan ends up failing when Zoey goes up against a JerkJock with no hangups about fighting a girl, and [[CurbStompBattle he wipes the floor with her]].

* ''ItsAlwaysSunnyInPhiladelphia'': Dee took part in the football try outs in one episode just to prove that she was more athletic than Mac and Dennis who were also competing. Despite the fact that she had a "spine made of glass", she made it farther than any of the other guys, but only because they were completely out of shape. At the end of the episode, [[spoiler: she injures her foot just kicking the football]].

* Not sports but definitely a physical competition: in the ''SoulCalibur'' game series, Seung Mina's entire motivation for seeking the Soul Edge is to find it before her father's star pupil Hwang can. She hopes this will prove she's as valuable in a fight as any guy. (According to the official storyline, neither of them ever get close. [[spoiler: In Hwang's SC 2 ending, though, Mina still gets a not-so-small reward by [[BigDamnHeroes saving his life after his battle with Inferno]] ''and'' having Hwang openly thank her and acknowledge her strength.]])

Any time the boys and girls had a contest, [[DoubleStandard the girls would win.]]

A girl participates in an athletic competition to show that girls can be as good at it as the boys are. She then makes good by a) outplaying/equaling her male counterparts in an athletic competition, or b) joining another team, and winning a game for her team. Sometimes this happens in retaliation to being called "[[StayInTheKitchen just a girl]]". Nine times out of ten, the girl is treated as a hero (with the "being carried on the other athletes' shoulders" treatment) upon winning the game.

* When Anarchy Championship Wrestling started it's "American Joshi" division, one of the goals was to remind people a woman's division could be portrayed as equal to a men's heavyweight, which hadn't been done in the USA since the 1940s. First title holder Portia Perez went on to win the Heavyweight Title Belt during the 2011 Lone Star Classic, though she lost it in the semi finals due to interference from Robert Evans.
