Women pack a punch at the Olympics

Women pack a punch at the Olympics

For the first time all Olympic sports are now open for women's participation.  The London 2012 Olympics introduced women's boxing which was the last sport to introduce an Olympic women's event.

Although all Olympic events are now open to women, some countries have prevented, or have made it extremely difficult for women to participate.  London 2012 will be the first Olympic Games to which every participating country sent women competitiors: Brunei, Qatar and Saudi Arabia have women competitors for the first time.
