What if proportionality applied... Team USA?

We'd have to tell eight (8) women "Sorry, you aren't going to London."

Aren't we fortunate the USOC doesn't use money from the feds?  If they did, Title IX would apply, right?  Using the gender quota system, we'd have to balance out the squad, wouldn't we?

Ridiculous, isn't it?

269 women and 261 men make up the 2012 USA Olympic team.  They earned their spots by taking advantage of the opportunities that were available.

Congratulations to each and every one of our Olympians and best of luck to them at the Games!
