The inclusion of the tennis mixed doubles event will not increase the current number of athletes and will bring an added value to the Olympic programme by providing another opportunity for men and women to compete together on the same field of play.
The EB agreed to this modification as the UCI has adjusted its track cycling programme to remain within its current number of events and athletes. These changes in the track cycling programme bring the number of women cyclists at the Games to 84, up from 35 in Beijing.
Both men and women will now compete in the sprint, team sprint, keirin, team pursuit, and omnium events. The key positive factors included whether the changes would increase universality, gender equity and youth appeal, and, in general, add value to the Games. Other considerations included the cost of infrastructure, and the impact on the overall quota and the number of events.
All modifications to events, quotas or competition format for the Olympic Games in London are provisional, and will be reviewed for the programme of the Olympic Games after the Games in London.
