This week all hell seems to have been let loose as the news has hit the windsurfing headlines that the windsurfing discipline is to be scrapped from the 2016 Olympics and kitesurfing is to take it's place.
Good news for the kiters and I think it is great that the sport has got into the Olympics but find it a mystery why they could not have had both sailing disciplines.
Numerous articles are being published discussing the issue right now. There is even a petition going around for the Olympic committee to go back on their decision. Some of these articles can be seen on the links below.
