2 kite or not 2 kite?

Διαβάσαμε σήμερα στο sail-world.com το παρακάτω δημοσίευμα που δείχνει την τάση που δημιουργείται υπέρ του kite σε παγκόσμιο επίπεδο. 
Στην IKA έχουν αποκρυπτογραφήσει σωστά τις τάσεις του καιρού μας και απ' ότι φαίνεται θα πετύχουν να βάλουν το σπορ τους στους Ολυμπιακούς Αγώνες. 
Αν συνδυάσουμε τις παρατηρήσεις της ΙΚΑ που δημοσιεύσαμε τις προάλλες και την υποστήριξη που δίνουν οι παρακάτω προσωπικότητες στο kite καταλήγουμε στο συμπέρασμα ότι το kite θα σώσει την Ολυμπιακή ιστιοπλοΐα. Sir Richard Branson (Chairman of Virgin Group): 'Kite-boarding is a fun and spectacular sport that I think would make a tremendously exciting addition to the Olympic Games'.

Neil Pryde (Managing Director of Neil Pryde Ltd.): 'Kiteboarding today represents the cutting edge of sailing. The Olympic Games stand at the pinnacle of sailing and it is therefore logical and natural that Kiteboarding has a place in Olympic Sailing.'

Michael Gebhardt (Two time windsurfing Olympic Medallist): 'Kiteboarding, the newest discipline of modern high performance sailing, is perfectly positioned to launch the future of Olympic Sailing into the 21st century. The future is here and now. Kiteboarding is the future of Olympic sailing.'

Ben McNabb (Sports Lawyers Association): 'The future of Olympic Sailing rests with Kiteboarding. It's fast, exciting and visually stunning. Kiteboarding at the Olympics is inevitable, and our goal is to see it to fruition at the 2016 games.'

Jerome Pels (ISAF Secretary General): 'Foiling Moths with wing masts and kiteboards are the answer' (in response to a statement from Pierre Ducrey, Head of Sports Operations at IOC, regarding 'added value' that sailing needs to provide to the Olympic Games).

The submission deadline for the all-deciding ISAF mid-year conference beginning of May in St. Petersburg is approaching fast - in fact it will be 12:00 UTC on Monday, March 10.
We (the IKA) invite all MNAs that are planning to put in a submission for a slate of events for the 2016 Olympic Games in Rio de Janeiro to discuss combinations with us to achieve our common goal, to make sailing in the Olympic Games more attractive and to secure sailing a place in the Olympic Games long term.
