I didn't check all those articles, but the slant that was given to me when I commented on countries such as Suadi Arabia sending female athletes for the first time was that they were told they HAD to have female athletes or they couldn't compete. So that's going around as well, at least locally.
I actually doubted that, since athletes take years to become skilled in a sport and one of these female athletes was the flag bearer (somewhere like Saudi Arabia, Iraq, Afghanistan, I don't recall)
