The International Ski Federation (FIS) has come under fire after a slew of disqualifications marred Monday's first Olympic mixed team event, with one athlete saying the governing body had "destroyed" women's ski jumping.

Germany, Austria, Norway and Japan all suffered disqualification for suit infringements, prompting anger and tears on what should have been a great night for the sport, but which ended up in fiasco.

Each team was made up of two women and two men, and all five of those disqualified were female.

"We were looking forward to the second competition at the Olympics. FIS destroyed that with this action — they destroyed women's ski jumping," Germany's Katharina Althaus, who was one of those disqualified, told reporters.

"Our names are now [out] there and we just pulled the crap card. That is how you destroy nations, development and the entire sport."

The Canadian team was able to take advantage, earning bronze amid the narrowed field.
