Interesting, that's good to know. Somebody else said that a woman's "time of the month" affects the ligament's pliability too...

I'll be able to take time off after March, when the season ends.

fls is right: a woman's pelvis is wider, so the angle down from hip joint to knee is much greater than the same line on men, so yes, women are more prone to knee injury. When I hit puberty and grew hips overnight, I had to learn to ski differently to handle my body and to avoid injury.

But it hasn't stopped women with figures from doing fantastic sports (Svetlana Boginskaya for example, shown in 1988-ish).
