Full gender equality at the Winter Olympics Milan Cortina 2026!

The program of sports and events of the Milano Cortina 2026 Winter Olympics will include a record number of women's games and will be the most balanced tribal version of the Winter Olympics to date, with 47 percent female participation. The program has been approved by the Executive Board (EB) of the International Olympic Committee (IOC) based on the recommendations of the Olympic Program Committee (OPC), which evaluated the proposals from the International Federations (IFs).

Eight new events have been added to the programme, with a particular focus on gender equality in terms of events and athlete quotas. This approach is in line with the goal of reducing the cost and complexity of hosting the Winter Olympics by using the existing venues and adhering to the total athlete quota of 2,900.
