Do you have permission from the Olympic games governing body to use the logo? Especially when this competition isn’t run or endorsed by the official Olympic?

So happy to be here as the IAB’s Oceanic Advisor. Can’t wait to get started!

Okay, if someone will really be satisfied by flagging this as off-topic, get your jollies I guess, but I have to ask.

@Balloonchaser, Air + Olympics = Airalymipics?

There’s a perfectly good play on words staring you in the face that keeps the Olympics part intact: Aerolympics.

Just a thought.

The “Airalympics” actually stems from the Paralympics.

Air + Par a lympics = Air a lymipics

Tada

Fair enough, then. Carry on.
