Why are so many olympic sports split on the basis of gender. I guess it makes sense in events where men are quicker or stronger, but things like gymnastics, archery, shoting, sailing, etc?

I heard it was because Men have more upper body strength naturally, I think this makes a difference in a lot of sports (even gymnastics and archery etc)

in gymnastics wouldn't the women benefit from being lighter though, requiring less upper body strength to lift themselves
