    My guess: to be a professional athlete, one must be socially conditioned, brought up, in the male stereotype. That is taught to go after what one wants, be aggressive and competitive. With professional athlete parents, it's more likely a female is instilled with those values as opposed to the stereotypical female virtues of patience, acceptance and passive team play.

    Glancing through your hate filled commentary, that exact word came to my mind as well. "Period."

    That's part of the dynasty. There have, since its inception, been 8 Women's World Cups. The US has won 4, including that one, and finished at least third every Cup.

    If an NFL team wins the Superbowl 4 out of 8 years, and makes their Conference Championship game the other 4 years, that's a dynasty.

    It's perhaps the greatest World Cup dynasty of all time including men.

    That might well be the case.

    the US Men's Olympic basketball team is probably the greatest team sports dynasty in history. Not a world cup though. One could argue UCLA's basketball teams were as well

    The US currently has two world dynasties, men's basketball and women's soccer. Historically, maybe a little golf? I can't think of other historical dynasties.

    One might argue the Gators represent a world dynasty unparalleled.

    US swimming is equally as dominant. for years basketball was a secondary sport internationally and that was the case of women's soccer, but swimming is an international sport
