Winter Olympics 2014: Women Can Jump

International Olympic Committee has added 6 new events to 2014 Winter Olympic Games in Sochi, Russia: women’s ski jumping, team figure skating, biathlon mixed team relay, luge team relay, and ski half pipe for men and women. The last one is extremely popular in USA and Canada, whose teams would probably be among the favorites at the upcoming Games.

The most significant news is that women are finally allowed to compete in ski jumping after a huge scandal on the Winter Olympics 2010 in Vancouver, Canada.

The IOC is considering inclusion of 5 more events.
