Canadian Women Challenge Olympic Ski Jumping Ban

Canadian Women Ski Jumpers are really peeved at the IOC and the international ski jumping officials who have decided that women can't compete in the sport in the 2010 Olympics.

Even worse is one of the reasons given for the exclusion: "it's medically unfit for women to be ski jumpers, which is a great one that didn't go over well with everyone, that it's just too dangerous for women — even though you have women aerials, women skeleton, luge, bobsled."

Yeah, um. Hello? That attitude went out years ago. Give women the chance to compete in the Olympic games. There is no good reason to exclude women ski jumpers from competition.
