Rio 2016 All-time By event Individual

STATISTICS WOMEN

The Women´s Olympic Program has remained unchanging since 1968, with the only addition of the 50 FS in 1988. It has been adding new events since it started in Amsterdam 1912, where only 2 events were held; but none has disappeared. Thus, all of them are counted in the table below.
