Windsurfen geen olympische sport meer?!

Zo veel dromen die verwoest zijn, en jaren lang trainen die niet nodig blijken te zijn. Een sport die steeds meer groeit onder Olympisch discipline, dat fysieke fitness vereist, tactieken en dedicatie, verwoest door een slecht geïnformeerd bureau. Hebben ze wel nagedacht over de mensen die duizenden uren hebben gespendeerd met de hoop om ooit Olympisch goud te behalen?

Sign the petition and appeal against the controversial (let alone awful) decision made by ISAF to replace windsurfing with kitesurfing at the Olympics..

Whilst the logic behind competitive kitesurfing is leaving a lot of people confused, there is no reason why we cannot have both Windsurfing and Kitesurfing as Olympic classes. If they want to cut disciplines, at least let it be even and justified throughout the sports.

Its not too late, if it comes to that, a 2 third majority at the ISAF annual meeting  in november can overrule this decision – keep signing and get our opinion heard.

Our next step is to contact the various medias – if you know someone who works for a newspaper blog or news website, local or national, push them to write a story about our movement. The more coverage- the more weight our voice will have.
