Mail for help.Help!!

Log in to snowHeads to make it MUCH better! Registration's totally free, of course, and makes snowHeads easier to use and to understand, gives better searching, filtering etc. as well as access to 'members only' forums, discounts and deals that U don't even know exist as a 'guest' user. (btw. 50,000+ snowHeads already know all this, making snowHeads the biggest, most active community of snow-heads in the UK, so you'll be in good company)..... When you register, you get our free weekly(-ish) snow report by email. It's rather good and not made up by tourist offices (or people that love the tourist office and want to marry it either)... We don't share your email address with anyone and we never send out any of those cheesy 'message from our partners' emails either. Anyway, snowHeads really is MUCH better when you're logged in - not least because you get to post your own messages complaining about things that annoy you like perhaps this banner which, incidentally, disappears when you log in :-)
Remember me:
👁 durr, I forgot...

Keeping women ski jumpers out of Olympics discriminatory, says former mayor

Preventing women ski jumpers from competing at the 2010 Winter Olympics in Vancouver is no different from denying women the right to vote, according to a former mayor of Salt Lake City. In an interview on Friday night, Deedee Corradini, who is now president of Women's Ski Jumping USA, said "It's discrimination.
The Olympics stand for equality between men and women. That is part of their charter. Since 1991 any new sport that goes into the Olympic Games has to include women."
...Corradini, who was mayor when Salt Lake received the 2002 Winter Olympic and sat on the Games executive, plans to hold a news conference today at the Canadian ski jumping championships in Whistler to argue women ski jumpers should be allowed at the Vancouver Games.

The International Olympic Committee (IOC) voted against allowing women ski jumping in Vancouver, arguing the sport is not developed enough and that it doesn't meet the basic criteria for inclusion.

Corradini said it's against Canadian provincial and federal law to spend government money on facilities that discriminate.

Anger over the IOC's action resulted in some Canadian women ski jumpers filing a complaint with the Canadian Human Rights Commission, arguing the Olympic movement is discriminating against them.

Women's ski jumping will not be an Olympic event for the forseeable future.

Despite efforts by the federal government to convince the International Olympic Committee to include the sport at the 2010 Vancouver Games, the sporting body said in a statement today that their decision not to include it two months ago still stands.
