LAUSANNE, Switzerland (AP) - A proposal to add women's lightweight single sculls to the Olympics has failed to gain approval from rowing's governing body.

Rowing federation FISA says the Canadian proposal was withdrawn at the federation's congress in Copenhagen over the weekend.

There are currently six women's events on the Olympic program, with eight for men.

Meanwhile, the congress approved the reintroduction of the women's four event for the world championships. The event had been removed after the 2011 worlds.

The congress also rejected a proposal to eliminate the men's coxed pair event.
