ANYTHING ELSE THAT YOU WANT THE PEOPLE TO KNOW ABOUT YOU:

I wish these Olympic Games to give to all over the world the real spirit of Peace on Earth and unity of nations they first had in ancient Greece. I’m glad that windsurfing doesn’t seem to be infected by doping like many other sports. Like many people in this world I’m against globalisation the way many multinational companies practise it. I believe each nation should keep it’s own identity and individual culture. I hope earth will not become homogenous soup of anthropoids. I wish everybody a long windsurfing life.
