Copenhagen, Wednesday. In an unprecedented move, the decision to award the 2016 summer Olympic Games to Rio de Janeiro has been revoked and has instead, been awarded to a rank outsider: the small Pacific island town of Noumea.

Following the post decision celebrations in Rio and the amount of naked skin exposed by Brazilian citizens, the officials panicked at the thought of their great institution being reduced to a mardi gras.

After a quickly convened meeting a momentous agreement was reached and the games transferred to Noumea, capital of New Caledonia.

A member at the meeting said, with a very strong French accent: "I have been to Noumea once or twice. Its good. Everybody speaks French there."

Noumea was the first city admitted into the bidding competition however it never got past the opening rounds. It seems, however, that half of the delegates vacation there and felt it would be convenient to have the world's largest sporting event happen in Noumea.

As for sporting facilities and accommodation not to mention transport logistics, that is something they will worry about later.

Just enjoy the change.
