This research aimed at identifying physical and sports habits in adolescents from Castile and Leon, Spain, looking into how physical differences were used to justify heteronormativity and stereotypes in sport, according to one sex or another. Sports practice level, motivations and preferences for certain practices were considered. A quantitative methodology was used, particularly survey as data collection tool; data were statistically analyzed using SPSS software. Results indicate a lower number of physical-sports practices for women, lack of substantial female sports references, and women’s relationship with social gender roles and gender stereotypes. The prevalence of gender inequality in sports practice between students in Castile and Leon is confirmed
