Olympics double down on wokeness, eliminate long standing event in name of gender equity

Article here. Excerpt:

'The sport consists of race-walking your way to victory over a 50 km (~31 miles) stretch, which is much more grueling than it sounds.

Introduced as an Olympic sport in 1932, the event will make its final appearance at the Games this year — at least, in its original format — after officials deemed the competition unfair because these same officials haven’t created a women’s version of the same competition.

According to the report from News.com.au, "The Olympic committee has decided the race does not fit with its stated mission of gender equality. It is the only event on the Olympic program that has no approximate equivalent for women. Rather than add a women’s race, they will bring in an unspecified mixed-team race walking event."

They came, they saw and they sashayed their way into your hearts. Not anymore. These Olympic athletes will no longer be able to participate in their sport because biological women don’t have a chance … something that the Olympics committee has certainly overlooked in recent memory.'

. . . are they are going to get rid of synchonized swimming too, since that is a female-only event?

The olympics has gone full political, as far from the original ethos as is possible. It will be a relief to stop watching, supporting or donating.
