As athletes around the world head to Rio de Janeiro for the Summer Olympics this week, men continue to overwhelmingly outnumber women in leadership spots at international organizations that govern the games, a new report shows.Women are projected to make up 45 percent of the athletes competing in Rio. Yet the report released Wednesday by the Institute for Diversity and Ethics in Sport shows that of 8,500 leadership positions at international sports federations affiliated with the International Olympic Committee, only 5.7 percent (two out of 35) of federation presidents, 12.2 percent (17 of 139) of vice presidents and 13.1 percent (51 of 388) of executive committee members are women.Inside the IOC, only 24.4 percent (22 of 90) of members are women.

She said the reports findings brought out a sobering truth.Ackerman added across the various sports, there is no shortage of areas where womens voices and votes would enrich dialogue, improve decision-making and ensure that sports remain in step with the times.This marginalization is short-sighted and at odds with the ideals of inclusiveness the sports world increasingly holds dear, Ackerman said.---Online: Olympics website: NFL Jerseys Wholesale Wholesale Jerseys Cheap Jerseys China Wholesale Jerseys 2020 Wholesale Jerseys 2018 Wholesale Jerseys 2019 Cheap Jerseys Free Shipping ' ' '
