At the world championship in the 470 class, which takes place on the Japanese island of Enoshima, the case comes to a head: tomorrow will be the medal race. In this regard, we have two news – good and bad. With what to begin?
Let’s start with the good. Yes there is with excellent! Paul Sozykin and Denis Gribanov gave Russia another Olympic license. As you know, the championship was played in Enoshima 4 trips to the Games, and our crew in this race was the second – after the Greeks Panagiotis Mantis and Pavlos Capialism.
In General, our – well done! Thanks guys!
Other news was not that bad – rather sad. For the first five of six qualifying and the final races Paul and Denis took 11th place in the medal race missed. Although we certainly hoped to get.
Well, stay optimistic. Did not work now work at the Olympics! Sure!
Well, in the medal race, the fight will be exciting. Claim the gold two crew – Jordi Xammar/ Nicholas Rodriguez from Spain (they have 23 points and they finished first in 6 of 11 races) and Australians Matthew Belcher/ will Ryan (24 points). While remaining far behind us and pretend I did that on bronze.
As for the women’s tournament, Alisa Kirilyuk and Angelica Chernyakhovskaya took the 29th place.
Leaders before the medal race are still the Brits Hannah mills/ Aled McIntyre – 48 points. But the Japanese AI Kondo Yoshida/ Miho Yoshioka is very close (49).
