The Supreme Court of BC ruled on July 10th that it did not have the authority to force the International Olympic Committee to include female ski jumping in 2010 Games. A group of 15 female ski jumpers went to court in April to argue their exclusion from the Vancouver Games violated the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms.
