I'm no lady

We've had the Olympics on without sound during breakfast because it's rather relaxing watching people race downhill over a cup of coffee, and I have a question. Why the hell are the women's events called Ladies'? The men's aren't gentlemen's events (though I think it would be charming if they used both terms) and it's "women's" in the summer Olympics. "Ladies'" implies that it's somewhat unusual for the delicate sex to take part in a spot of winter sports, by Jove, but aren't they plucky, what?
