I love this:

Biomechanical. Females tend to place more emphasis on quadriceps muscles, and this may be a significant reason for increased risk of ACL injuries. Orthopaedic researchers say females should learn to use their hamstring muscles more often. Also, females tend to land on a flat foot rather than their toes, which can contribute to increased injury rates.

....so their conclusion is that we should try to adapt and do things the way men would do them??? I thought this was the year 2003, and not 1954.

:) Must have been written by a chauvinistic male who doesn't realize that there are more males with ACL injuries than females????....I hope you find something useful in the links....
