IOC salutes women athletes
To mark International Women's Day, the Olympic Movement salutes all of the women who took part in the Vancouver 2010 Olympic Winter Games. The athletes thrilled us with their extraordinary skills and daring and we hope they will inspire a new generation of girls and young women to take part in sport.
The Olympic Movement needs and encourages women to support and engage in sport at every level around the world. We encourage women to contact their National Olympic Committees and learn about the many possibilities for joining and promoting the Olympic Movement.
