Sportacrat fight....Parkour says don't include us in the Olympics because the FIG is trying to steal the sport.

Actually this is really no different than when the international volleyball group took over beach volleyball from the AVP/Protour. Basically forced competitors into their events to make the Olympics.

Probably a similar fight when snowboarding/freestyle stuff was taken over by the Ski organizations.

So apparently Tahiti is in France

In all seriousness, France has a lot of territory that has the same political status as The Hexagon. Martinique, Guadeloupe, French Guiana in South America, and the Indian Ocean islands of Mayotte and Reunion are as much a part of France as Alaska and Hawaii are a part of the US. They also have a bunch of territories that have similar status that Puerto Rico has to the US, and Tahiti is one of them.
