the reason that there are different events for men and women is because men sports its much more brutal. for instance in hockey they split men and women because in mens hockey you can body check( nocking the other person down).

Did women verse men in the Olympic games?

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.
