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?

Ah, dammit, this year they're not! But previously they have been, and in 2016 they will be too. Sod's law, the time I want to use them as an example they're not - they have had a variety of classes including Open (anyone), OF (at least one female crew member), F&M (1 of each), and so on.

Amend it to "traditionally it's one of the few sports..." :)
