Two brothers of the Dane, William Åsholm Bradley and Gustav Åsholm Bradley, took 1st and 2nd places with a huge margin. “Fly away” in all races. The girls won Karolin Härm from Estonia. Our Lena Obedzinskaya took the fifth place, although it was the third until the last start. But in one of the races it was protested, it was disassembled for two hours, and as a result, Lena was only the fifth.
