The World Squash Federation (WSF) and the Professional Squash Association (PSA) jointly welcomed today's announcement made by the International Olympic Committee (IOC) regarding the new sports selection procedure for the Paris 2024 Olympic Games at the IOC Executive Board Meeting in Lausanne.
The number of women's hockey teams will increase from eight to 10 in 2022, but the overall number of athletes is expected to be fewer than the 2,933 in PyeongChang. Meanwhile, biathlon, luge, skating and skiing will each lose athlete quotas, while 12 men's bobsled quotas will be transferred to the new women's monobob competition.

"Woman's four-man bob costs three or four times of monobob", McConnell said. "We feel with Beijing we're getting closer to that". "We really didn't see more than a handful of countries really developing women's four-man programs because of the costs involved". Beijing will also represent the highest number of women at an Olympic Winter Games and the highest number of events.
Four mixed team events are also part of the programme in the Chinese capital. In PyeongChang, a mixed Alpine skiing team event and mixed doubles curling debuted. Looking for breaking news, videos, Olympic and Paralympic team bios all at your fingertips?
