Gender prize gap in world championships in sports

Source: Men get more prize money than women in 30% of sports By Anna Thompson & Aimee Lewis at BBC at https://www.bbc.com/sport/football/29744400

Most sports do not have a gender prize gap because they do not get on the telly much and therefore barely pay enough to cover expenses even for the winners. Whatever gender prize gap that there is for the sports on the telly are dictated by ratings. About a dozen sports that have world championships appear to pay no prizes at all.
