Sir Richard Branson strongly advocates for "Kiteboarding IN" !

Written by Editor on . Posted in News

Kiteboarding’s Olympic Ambassadors, Sir Richard Branson and ISAF Rolex Sailor of the year nominee Kristin Boese, met last week during Branson’s BVI Kite Jam on Necker Island, an event that attracted both top kiteboarding athletes, celebrities and businessmen from all around the world.

When asked about the IKA’s Olympic Project, Branson stated that “Kitesurfing reflects everything that the Olympics stands for. It has all the spirit of the original Olympics. Men against the elements, women against the elements, tremendous skill, tremendous excitement. It’s also perhaps the best spectator sport. It looks beautiful and any future Olympics that doesn't have kitesurfing in it need to have their heads examined."

A statement that surely only someone like Sir Richard Branson can make.

We invite everybody who intends to make a submission for a full slate of ten events for the 2016 Olympic Sailing Regatta to include Kiteboarding in his proposal – Kiteboarding ticks all the boxes the IOC wants to see in the Olympic Sailing Competition.
