"the proposal to eliminate the Men's Coxed Pair was rejected by the Congress. The Canadian proposal for adding a lightweight women's single to the Olympic programme was withdrawn."
It might help to know that there are currently 8 rowing events for men while there are only 6 rowing events for women. It's really not looking good for the International Federation of Rowing Associations they have hit both notes of sexist and outdated simultaneously. Do they really think that the men's coxed pair is a hot event. They don't even race it in Australia. Is it big in other countries?
I'm not suggesting that the women's event which is added should be the lightweight single but the boys get 2 lightweight boats don't the girls deserve another.
Please get it together FISA you are making us all look bad.
