"If you compared the previous world championships to the first one, there was much more quality and depth compared to 2009," IOC sports director Christophe Dubi said. "At the time you had a handful of really good jumpers. If you compare 2009 and 2011, you have a really wide increase of technical capability."

But a big reason for that is an outrageously antiquated misconception of women's reproductive health.

To put it more bluntly, people thought ski jumping would mess up your uterus.
