started this petition to
Jacques Rogge, President of the International Olympic Committee
The President of the International Olympic Committee (IOC) presents the gold medal to the winner of the men's marathon but not to the winner of the women's marathon. This gender discrimination is an insult to women athletes and to all women everywhere. Help us send a signal to the IOC that the unequal treatment of women is unacceptable.
