Olympic Gender Discrimination

“This is a tale of two ski jumpers, one male, one female. Anders Johnson, 20, ranked 100th in the world, made the US Olympic team for the second time and headed for the 2010 Winter Games in Vancouver. His sister Alissa, 22, who is ranked 11th in the world, did not go to the Olympics. In fact, no woman will have the chance to jump for Olympic gold. That’s because ski jumping, one of the original winter Olympic events, still holds a male-only competition, the only Olympic sport to do so,” writes Michele Morris on Huffington Post.
