List of the events women cannot participate in the Olympics?

At the previous two Olympics (2008 Summer Games in Beijing and 2010 Winter Games in Vancouver) there were three sports that women did not compete in .... boxing, ski jumping, and nordic combined. Women's boxing has been included in the 2012 Summer Games in London. The International Olympic Committee is scheduled to rule on including women's ski jumping to the 2014 Winter Games in Sochi in April, 2011. With 43 nations sending competitors to the recent world championships in Norway, it is almost a lock that women's ski jumping will debut in 2014. Nordic combined is a sport that combines ski jumping and cross country skiing. The clamor to add women's nordic combined to the Olympics has not been as strong as that of adding women's ski jumping. But, rest assured, as soon as women's ski jumping is added to the Olympics women's nordic combined won't be too far behind.
