Women's Ski Jumping

There was a push in the courts to include women's ski jumping at the 2010 Vancouver Games. The top performers in women's ski jumping went to Canadian courts claiming discrimination. However, a spokesperson for the IOC stated that "the decision not to include women's ski jumping was taken purely on technical merit". Their claim was ultimately unsuccessful. In 2014, Women's Ski Jumping was finally added to the sports program.
