The IOC says that Women Ski Jumpers can't compete in the Olympics. Any thoughts!

The IOC is a highly political organization. Sporting organizations spend tens of millions of dollars accomodating IOC rules and requirements in order to have a shot of being considered an Olympic sport.

Sadly, for the women's ski jumpers, they are experiencing an age old reality of women's sports throughout Olympic history.

There are many sports that it took deacdes to get the Olympic and milions of dooalrs to egt included as a event. thsi is just one that is standing in line. The report does address that other sports or people in that sport has to satnd in lien alos.Just because some people crat and team does not mean it is going to be included. ts a pretty full bill of fare as it is now days.
