We want women at Decathlon competition at the olympics sign now

I’m an athlete, and I’m a girl. It is my dream to compete in the Olympics as a Decathlete and I know I’m not alone. But the Olympics doesn’t offer the event for women.

The Decathlon is considered the ultimate test of human athleticism. For years, men have competed in the Decathlon at the Olympic level while women are forced to settle for the Heptathlon. It’s past time for this to change.

The Decathlon consists of 10 track and field events held over a two-day period. It’s been proven that women can successfully compete in Olympic Decathlon events. In fact, women already compete individually in all the events comprising the Decathlon at the every level.

Additionally, the IAAF (the international track and field governing board) has recognized and scored women in Decathlon events since 2001. They simply don’t allow the women’s Decathlon at major international championships.

This is a simple matter of fairness. If women are capable of competing the the same individual track sports as the men, AND if women are capable of competing in the decathlon at lower level championship events -- why won’t the IAAF and the IOC allow women to compete at the top level?

If you believe in fairness, please sign and share this petition. Help girls like me get one step closer to the dream of competing in the event we love -- the Olympic decathlon.
