Sporty heroine

Sometimes there seems to be a surfeit of girly heroines in romance.
I enjoy swimming myself and like reading a heroine who has some sort of sport as a regular part of her life. This list is for heroines like that. h doesn't have to be an Olympic athlete or even an official athlete though. Just a normal girl who likes sports and has a regular dating life.

Sports is one of the things great for mind-body. A sporty heroine IMO sets a great example for readers (esp. YA) as opposed to those books with chubby heroines eating cute cupcakes by the dozen and bemoaning their increasing weight at the same time!

Have at it! Books from any romance subgenre - YA, BDSM, menage - ranked in no specific order or preference. Any kind of sporty activity - hiking, gymnastics, horseriding, white-water rafting etc.

No Harlequins or historicals please!

Mar Smiles I am looking for a specific book and I hope you can help me find it's name.
It is about a girl/woman that used to do gymnastics, but one day in an important competition she crashes her knee, and her career is over. But then she becames a physical therapist and helps a (i think it was rugby or baseball) player bc he has injured his arm.
It was a beautiful story to read, so I hope you can help me find it and maybe read it because it's super cute.
Pd: The guy is kind of an asshole at the beginnig bc of his injury but we will just ignore that.
