Paris 2024 coordinators pick faraway Tahiti to have surfing occasions in radical move

PARIS (AP, AFP, REUTERS) – The coordinators of the Paris 2024 Olympic Games want to hold surfing occasions more than 15,000km away in the Pacific island of Tahiti.

The coordinators said on their Twitter account on Thursday (Dec 12) that they have picked the town of Teahupo’o, on the south-west shoreline of the French Polynesian island.

The tweet was joined by a dose of the forcing, polished waves Teahupo’o is eminent for. The area, given the gesture over sea shores in south-west France and in Brittany, brags some the greatest waves on the men’s World Cup circuit.

“It’s a very lovely shock and acknowledgment for our history that will reestablish respect to Polynesia, where surfing started,” the leader of Tahiti’s surfing organization, Lionel Teihotu, told AFP.

The 2024 Summer Games will be held from July 26 to Aug 11 – 100 years after Paris last facilitated them.
