    Reclaiming Fitspo: Brenda Villa

    Villa is an American water polo player. Standing at 5’4” and 174 pounds, she is the shortest member of the US women’s polo team.

    Born in Los Angeles, she is the daughter of Mexican immigrants. She first joined a water polo team at 8 years old, following in the footsteps of her older brother. However, since her high school did not have a girls’ team, she spent those four years on the boys’ water polo team instead. This helped her to establish a competitive attitude that contributed to her becoming a 4-time 1st team All-League member, 4-time 1st team All-C.I.F. and a 4-time All-American. She was even invited onto the Junior Olympic Team when she was 16.

    While Villa attended Stanford University, she played three seasons on their polo team. In her freshman year alone (2001), she scored 69 goals and was named the NCAA Women’s Water Polo Player of the Year. In 2002 she led her team with 60 goals to win the NCAA Women’s Water Polo Championship. She was then awarded the 2002 Peter J. Cutino Award as the top female college water polo player in the United States. She graduated in 2003 with a degree in political science.

    Villa joined Team USA in 1998. This means that she has participated in four Olympic Games (earning one Bronze medal, two Silver and one Gold), often scoring the most goals per game for her team. She was even made team captain of the 2005 US national team, winning a silver medal at the FINA World Championship in Montreal. When considering multiple World Championships, Pan American Games and World Cups, Villa is officially the world’s most decorated athlete in women’s water polo.

    As a fat woman I am constantly bombarded by images from the media and my peers about what I can’t do because of my weight. All these assumptions are falsely based off the blind ideal that if I’m fat I must be unhealthy and unfit. I tried paddle boarding recently, something I’ve always wanted to do but my weight prevented me from because of fear of judgment by others. Let this post be a reminder to challenge yourself to do things your uncomfortable with, and if you fail get right back up and keep going. #yestofatwomen

    DANZA VOLUMINOSA: Cuba’s Sensational Plus-Size Dance Company

    image

    Danza Voluminosa, a dance group created in 1996 by dancer and choreographer Juan Miguel Mas, features prima ballerina Mailín Daza and seven dancers in total: six beautiful fat women and himself. They have three full-length productions under their belts as well as 30 shorter pieces. A Canadian documentary, “Defying Gravity” (2004) chronicles Juan Miguel Mas’ vision for his troupe and the obstacles they have faced.

    According to Mas:

    We provide a context for obese people to develop artistically, to create a language and a structure that makes them able to interact with society. But it’s not limited to fat people. We’ve worked with dancers who gained weight, retired dancers – all kinds of artists said to be ‘good for nothing’. We’ve worked with people with AIDS. 

    We’ve played in places for the first time where people have shouted at us, ‘look at those fat people!’ We still hear giggles sometimes, but when audiences see the sense of purpose, the work that has gone into the show, our concentration – well, there’s always huge applause at the end.
