Ask the International Olympic Committee to Include Women's Ski Jumping In 2014 Games

This petition made change with 460 supporters!


Currently, Ski Jumping is the only Winter Olympic Event that excludes women athletes. Let's ask the IOC to rethink the current regulations and include women in a sport that is currently only open to men. Women's Ski Jumping has International Ski Federation Jump Competitions, it's own World Championship, and hundreds of athletes already competeing. Curently, Lindsay Van, a female skier hold the world record for ski jumping on the Vancouver. Why would the IOC not allow women to compete?

Women ski jumpers, like Lindsey Van, deserve the chance to compete at the highest level- the Olympics. The reasons given by the IOC for their exclusion are not good enough. It's that simple.  With the 2010 Olympics in Vancouver well underway, focus for change can be directed at the 2014 games scheduled to be held in Russia.
