Olympic sport closed to women

This made me good and mad ~

Gender barrier at the Olympics

No man or woman has flown farther than American Lindsey Van off the K90 ski jump built for the 2010 Vancouver Olympics. Van holds the distance record at the K90 hill in Whistler, British Columbia. But Van and other women contend they are barred from the 2010 games simply because they're women. Ski jumping is the last Winter Olympics sport closed to women. So Van and nine other women from six countries are suing to get into the 2010 games.
