Re good looking sportswomen treated more favourably than ordinary sportswomen?

It is my belief that sportswomen are given more opportunities during and especially after their career ends if they are perceived to be good looking. Athletes such as Anna Kournikova and Jessica Ennis-Hil may well be good athletes, but I would content that they are given more opportunities to appear in the media, television interviews, sponsorship and advertising than female athletes who are not as visually appealing.
