"The gender gap stretches beyond the Olympics. Ski jumping, like many sports, pays men far more than women. Under the official rules of the International Ski Federation, which sets the minimum amount of prize money for the World Cup, the first place male jumper gets more than three times what the winning woman receives. The ski federation's rules also stipulate that men receive "pocket money"; no such provision exists for women. And men receive up to four times more travel reimbursement money than the women."
