but here is a summary
IOC president Jacques Rogge said prior to Thursday’s gold-medal game that women’s hockey has to improve worldwide, or else.

“We cannot continue without improvement,” he said.

Women’s hockey at the Vancouver Olympics has played out basically the same way it did in the previous three Games. Canada and the U.S. dominated, and the rest of the teams were cannon fodder. Even before Rogge spoke out yesterday, there were whispers the IOC was going to look into the viability of the sport.

Now let's not forget that ITALY was the team who won the last World Cup.

I'm still doing a happy dance over that one.

Seriously though, if a country CHOOSES not to support a sport or their citizens that do it how can you punish those athletes in countries that do. That's what it boils down to for me. But, look at the list of sports for the Olympics... Bridge and Chess are both listed as sports that can be competed in... so there ya go.
