Ski jumping has been an event at all Winter Olympics, since the first held in 1924. The Large Hill competition was added to the program for the 1964 Games in Innsbruck. Ski jumping was an event just for men at the Winter Olympics until the women's event was added for the 2014 Games in Sochi. Ski jumping also comprises part of the Nordic Combined event.

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.
