According to Yahoo SportsThe judges disqualified the women skiing for Austria Japan Norway Germany and Norway, as their clothing was too loose. However, the disqualification was quite shocking as the women had their outfits cleared in previous jumps.

“The [International Ski Federation] destroyed everything with this operation,”Katharina Althaus is one of the disqualified athletes reportedly said. “I think they have destroyed women’s ski jumping. I have been checked so many times in 11 years of ski jumping, and I have never been disqualified once.

“I know my suit was compliant … 160 World Cup starts, 5x World Championships, 3x Olympic Games and I got DSQ for the first time. My heart is broken.”

Karl Geiger, a German ski jumper, also spoke out against these rules and asked if the rules were applicable to women. “were changed overnight.”

“We stick together no matter what. Nevertheless, I have to ask myself whether the regulations for the women were changed overnight, with so many disqualifications?!? It was neither the right time nor the right place to disqualify so many athletes from different nations,”According to Yahoo Sports, Geiger stated that.

Ski jumping by women is a relatively recent event at the Winter Games. The Olympics added it in 2014, and the mixed-team ski jumping event is now part of the Games.

The mixed event was won by Slovenia with 1,001.5 points. Russia came second with 890.3 points while Canada came third with 844.6.
