If the women can't jump in the 2010 Olympics , then this will be the first time in my life time that I will not watch the Winter Olympics. Personally I would hope that everyone would boycott the Olympics if the IOC doesn't change their ruling.
The ruling means that the ski jumper who holds the distance record on the K95 "normal hill" in Vancouver won't get to compete at the games. Lindsey Van, 24, of Park City, Utah, has jumped farther than any man on the Olympic hill.
Lindsey Van will watch on television as men try to beat her record at February's games. She's looking ahead to 2014, but she's not sure she can last that long in the sport given the lack of financial support for non-Olympic athletes.
If the women can't jump and the men beat Lindsey Van's record, what do you think the first question the reporters are going to ask the male ski jumper?
This defeats what the Olympic competition is all about.
