Petition Tag - sports equality
Who: Womens' National Ski Jumping Team
What: The IOC has taken Women's Ski Jumping off of the 2010 Olympic Menu.
When: They were removed from the menu on November 29, 2007.
Where: The Olympics will be taking place in Vancouver in 2010.
Why: The IOC has decided to remove this event because they stated there was not enough funding, popularity, contestants, time and enough international competition before the Olypics.
Problem: We believe that gender equality in sports is important and that since there is no alternate sport for the women to compete in that the IOC must allow them to compete.
