Best Answer

Synchronized swimming and rhythmic gymnastics are for women only. Softball was another - it has been dropped but a campaign is mounting to reinstate it at the 2012 London games.

Some other events have a slightly different male and female version. For example, in speed swimming only women compete at 800m and only men compete at 1500m. Another example in Track and Field: men compete in the decathlon (10 events); women in the heptathlon (7 events).
