Pure chaos: the Danish OLYMPIC dream can be revived

Former head of the international sejlsportsforbund, World Sailing, raises doubts about the outcome of the vote, which removes the finnjollen from the OLYMPICS programme.

This writes the news agency AP.

Paul Henderson, who was the president of the World Sailing from 1994 to 2004, believes that more votes were counted incorrectly, since the sejlsportsforbundet in november voted to change the composition of the olympic boat classes with effect from the OLYMPIC games in Paris in 2024.

he writes in a letter to his successor in office, Danish Kim Andersen.

With Henderson, there are now four members of the World Sailing's executive committee, who claim that their votes were recorded incorrectly.

At the annual general meeting in november, which was held in Florida, decided to add a new twin kølbådsdisciplin that sails long distance on the open sea.

This meant, in turn, to finnjollen lost its olympic place. Finnjollen has historically been successful for Denmark with three OLYMPIC gold medals, a silver and a bronze medal.

Finnjollen was with at the OLYMPICS for the first time in 1952 and remains on the OLYMPIC programme at the games in Tokyo in 2020. But then it's over.

- There is a need for prompt attention to this unfortunate situation, writes Paul Henderson to the Danish president.

the Vote on the new olympic boat classes were very close. Thus it is a possibility that the result - and finnjollens fate as OLYMPIC discipline - not decided yet.

Kim Andersen says to the AP that as soon as the World Sailing, has completed a thorough investigation of the vote count, 'then we will decide what the appropriate response should be'.
