Kim Martin – obstinacy
Hockey goalkeeper who played 244 international matches, took home two World Championship bronze medals, one Olympic bronze and one Olympic silver medal, and three Swedish Championship gold medals. Kim Martin was named the best (female) hockey player of the year, but that certainly did not entail the equivalent of a man’s pay – rather than a contract for millions of Swedish kronor, she received a monthly wage while active of about SEK 6,000. In 2014, Kim Martin stopped playing hockey for financial reasons.
