The only sport that should have a mixed event is weightlifting, especially if it's no hands weightlifting. :lol: :whistle:

The more events the better right? If you don't like it don't watch

Because with IOC putting cap on total medals and athletes, it is a Zero-Sum-Game. These events are coming at the expense of other events which are already there.

And most importantly, they come at the expense of more competitive, more historical and more prestiged events, which devalues the whole sport. I don't want to say it, but many of the changes seem to be just for the political correctness.

Not if they are utterly senseless events, just because "it's so correct to have mixed events everywhere".

I am okay with mixed events if current events are not cut. Also adding more women's events just to become neutral is just wrong.

There's sport where matching the program between men and women is natural, because the level is high.

Adding the C1 Women's slalom just for equality is stupid, not only for the obvious lack of high level, but because the cut of the C2 men's event. And that's only one example.

 

 

However, I would love to see the men's boxing cut to add more weigth's to the women. That's so universal I really feel like a joke only 3 woman category's....

The bigger joke is that every few kilograms have their own weight..

 

Just make a lightweight (-55kg), a middleweight (-80kg) and a heavyweight (everything above 80kg) :p

At last months womens european championships there were 10 categories like in the mens side. The lighter ones of course had great representation, because of the nature of women being smaller and lighter. But in the 4 heavy ones there were hardly enough boxers to fill the 1/4 and in one i remember there were exactly 5 boxers, so 3 of them got an european medal just for showing up... This brings again my earlier point for having events just for the sake of having them.

Another great point, the classes are too close. 10 categories in the mens side is too spread out. I wouldn't go that far, but 6-7 categories seem very good. Of course the loss of matches and etc. will cost AIBA big cash, so if course the rule will be more and not less.
