The International Olympic Committee won’t let these international elite athletes jump in the upcoming Vancouver Games because the IOC believes the women aren’t ready.
Fifteen women ski jumpers from six nations are plaintiffs in a gender-discrimination lawsuit against the Vancouver Olympic Organizing Committee in the Supreme Court of British Columbia. The women want an injunction saying they should be included. If not, then men shouldn’t be allowed to jump either. The hearing is set for today – April 20, 2009.
Find out just how READY these women are AND sign a petition (more than 10,000 signatures so far) demanding that the IOC upholds the true spirit of the Olympic Games by letting the women compete in 2010.
