It’s a crowded world in the sports influencer market, according to Paige Spiranac. And she doesn’t sound too impressed by it.
Taking part in an ‘Ask Me Anything’ with her 3.7million Instagram followers, she appeared to have a dig at the sporting influencers who have followed her path.
‘They say that imitation is the greatest form of flattery, so, I am proud to be inspiration for all of these women,’ Spiranac said.
‘I mean, they’ve seen me be successful and they know that if they copy exactly what I’m doing, or follow in my footsteps and the exact path that I have created and built for myself, that they will also be successful.
‘That’s pretty cool, and it shows how powerful my brand has been that if they do copy everything they will also be successful.’
Spiranac, in her role as the self-proclaimed ‘OG Insta golf girl’ – as she has in her Instragram bio – has indeed paved the way for others.
Rachel Stuhlmann is an equivalent in the tennis world, while the Cavinder twins in college basketball could be about to take on a similar role.
They stepped away from the sport on Tuesday after helping Miami Hurricanes reach the Elite Eight stage of March Madness.
