Following Canadian Women to
Salt Lake City

New women's events awaiting approval
Women's sports got a big boost from Salt Lake Olympic organizers Thursday, moving into a near-dead heat with men when it comes to the schedule for 2002. Under a proposal by the Salt Lake Organizing Committee, two-woman bobsled, skeleton and cross-country ski sprints would be added to the Winter Games. - May 20, 2001

About Skeleton
Skeleton returns to the Olympic Winter Games in Salt Lake City after a 54-year absence. The 2002 Games will mark skeleton's third Olympic appearance. Skeleton was contested in 1928 and 1948 Winter Games, both of which were held in St. Moritz, where skeleton was founded in the late 1800s. While only men's skeleton was contested in 1928 and 1948, men's and women's events will be on the program for Salt Lake.
