リオ ウイイドサーフィン オリンピック 2016

カイトのコミッティーはウインドもオリンピックにと言っている。
*沢山お金を使ったロービー活動があった。
*RSXが遅すぎた。
*カイトはワンデザインではルールらしい。
*IOCがISAF競技の増加を認めない?? = お金?? 
*ISAFのポリテイクス??
カイトが継続してオリンピンックの競技あるように、ウインドの様に無くならない様に。

So here it is from the horses mouth one of the biggest names in Olympic windsurfing Bruce Kendall, And i agree with him 200%


"Kite racing in the 2016 Olympics?

Some say the RSX was not a good Olympic Windsurfing board & had to go.
Many say both Kite & RSX should be in the Olympics.
Many are also saying Kite should be in the Olympics but not at the expense of Windsurfing.
Most, including the Kiting community are surprised to win the vote for Kite racing to be at the 2016 Olympic Games.
Some of the Kite surfing community have no interest in the new Olympic status & will continue to do freestyle & kite surf the waves.
The kite racing community, kite & board manufactures and NMA's are scrambling to get organised to get up to speed ASAP.
Face book chat has been lively & often passionate.
There has been a lot of misinformation, ignorance and learning about both Kite racing & windsurfing from those trawling through the FB chats.
Many of the windsurfing community feel like a good friend has died or been murdered, some see it as a chance to revitalise one design windsurf racing for the 2020 Olympics.
The FB petition to reinstate RSX to Olympic status for the 2016 Olympics was started on Sunday 6th May and has been collecting 3 people per minute for a week.
