Across the summer and winter Olympics, there are still three sports that do not feature both men’s and women’s events.
Nordic combined – a winter sport that combines ski jumping and cross-country skiing – is contested only by men at the Olympics, while two summer sports – artistic swimming and rhythmic gymnastics – feature only women’s events.
Female Nordic combined athlete Tara Geraghty-Moats and male artistic swimmer Bill May hope that isn’t always the case. On Tuesday, Geraghty-Moats and May joined “On Her Turf at the Olympics” co-hosts Lindsay Czarniak and MJ Acosta-Ruiz to discuss the future of their respective sports. (Video of their conversation is embedded above.)

During the Olympics, you can also catch up on all of the major storylines in women’s sports by watching “On Her Turf @ The Olympics,” a 30-minute show that streams for free on Peacock. Hosted by Lindsay Czarniak, MJ Acosta-Ruiz, and Lolo Jones, the show streams Monday-Saturday at 7pm ET and Sundays at 6pm ET.
