Three sports that I know of at one time allowed women to compete against men. Sailing at one time had several events open to men and women but in recent years has created separate events . Likewise shooting used to be open but they too have created separate events. Equestrian is the only current sport open to both sexes. Both shooting and equestrian have had women win gold medals competing against men. In the Winter Games the rules for luge allow for the doubles event to have women compete but I don't think this has happened as of yet.
The 1900 Olympics were the first modern Olympic Games to be open to women.
Overall, 9 new events were held, which included 2 from the new cycling discipline of BMX. Women competed in the 3000 m steeplechase for the first time. In addition, marathon open water swimming events for men and women, over the distance of 10 kilometres, were added to the swimming discipline. Team events (men and women) in table tennis replaced the doubles events. In fencing, women's team foil and women's team Sabre replaced men's team foil and women's team épée.
BMX racing and open water swimming made its debut in 2008 Women's boxing will debut in 2012 Golf and Rugby Sevens will be added in 2016.
There were nine new events under existing sports that were competed for the first time: 1) Cycling - new events for men's and women's individual BMX. 2) Swimming - new events for men's and women's 10 km open water swim (called the marathon). 3) Athletics - new event for women's 3000 meter steeplechase. 4) Fencing - new events for women's team foil and women's team Sabre replaced men's team foil and women's team epee. 5) Table Tennis - new events for women's team and men's team replaced women's doubles and men's doubles.

Is the Olympic fun center open
Greek Olympic Games inspired modern Olympic Games. One similaritty is the time between the events. In old Greek, Olympic Games happens every year, but only each four years happens the Olympic Games dedicated to Zeus, the major god in Olimpo. Other similaritie is the competittion between regions, today, countries. Other point is the competittion in running, the oldest sport in Olympic Games. More than that, the fire to make open the event is inspired in old Greek.

There are three Olympic training centers: Chula Vista, Lake Placid and Colorado Springs. Each one specializing in specific areas. Athletes who are preparing for competition in the Olympics use these facilities; they are not open to the public. Olympic athletes in any sport are chosen by a series of qualifying events. Some athletes live at the training centers; other visit periodically, either on their own or with their teams.
