Already tomorrow – medal races
In the yachting center on the Japanese island of Enoshima, where the Tokyo Games sailing regatta will be held in 2020, pre-Olympic test competitions are continuing, in which many of the strongest sailors on the planet take part.
The denouement is getting closer: tomorrow morning, on Wednesday, there will be medal races in five disciplines – 49er, 49erFX, Nacra 17 and RS: X in men and women. The Russians are represented in the last two, so let's start with the sailing board.
RS: X, women. According to the results of 11 races, Stefaniy Elfutin – in fifth place (56 points). It’s impossible to reach gold (Chinese Liu Yongxiu has 34 points now), but getting into the top three is real. But, of course, for this you need to perform perfectly in the medal race and hope that rivals from Israel, France and the UK will not be so successful.
Detailed Results –
RS: X, men. Here, alas, nothing shines for us. Before the medal race, Alexander Askerov is in 21st place (with 24 participants). The future winner, not particularly afraid of making a mistake, is the Chinese Gao Menfang, who is 16 points ahead of the Frenchman Tom Goyar.
Now – detailed results in the other three disciplines, where medal races will also take place tomorrow and where there are no Russians.
In five more disciplines, as you already know, medal races will take place on Thursday. Here, of course, we are most interested in the situation in the 470 class for men. After 8 races held, Pavel Sozykin and Denis Gribanov go, as before, in fifth place – 54 points. Unfortunately, the first three crews are very far away: the third-ranking Spaniards Jordi Xammar and Nicholas Rodriguez have 25 points. But the situation, Pavel and Denis can still be corrected on the last day of the final races.
470 women. Alisa Kirilyuk and Angelika Chernyakhovskaya – in the penultimate place.
"Laser standard." Sergey Komissarov does not get stuck either – he is only the 24th (27 participants in total).
Laser Radial. Ekaterina Zyuzina has a similar situation – 38th place (40 participants).
And in the end – detailed results at Finn. Where ours, unfortunately, are not.
