Park City, Utah (June 7, 2022) – On June 24, 2022, the International Olympic Committee (IOC) will make the decision on whether or not to admit Women’s Nordic Combined into the Winter Olympics. The IOC advocates for gender equality between men and women in every Olympic sport. However, Nordic Combined is the only sport in the Winter Olympics in which women do not compete.
Women’s Nordic Combined has made significant progress since 2018, being added to the Junior World Championships in 2019, the Youth Olympic Winter Games in 2020, establishing their first World Cup Series in 2020-21, and being added to the FIS Nordic World Ski Championships in 2021.
There has been a heavy push from all competitors, coaches and supporters of Nordic Combined to add the women into the Olympics since voting for the 2022 Olympic Winter Games in Beijing commenced. After being denied the right to compete in Beijing, the movement for Women’s Nordic Combined to be added to the 2026 Olympic Winter Games in Milan is already in motion.
Nordic Combined is a sport rich in tradition, being one of the six original Winter Olympic disciplines. This sport is constantly developing, and making steady progress in gender equality between men and women.
USA Nordic Sport advocates and supports Women’s Nordic Combined being added to Milan 2026, as we will continue to push for gender equality. USA Nordic asks our friends, fans, athletes and supporters to join us in the fight in supporting Women’s Nordic Combined being added to Milan 2026.
