Komissarov – 24th, Nikolaev – 26th
30-year-old Philip Boole from Germany (you see him in the picture) a few hours ago won a gold medal at the world championship in the Laser Standard class, which ended today in Melbourne.
Bull became the world champion for the first time, although he was more than once close to this – he won silver and two bronzes of previous world championships. But this year in Melbourne, the German showed himself in all its splendor. In six qualifying races, he came four times first, and his worst result was the 10th parish in the penultimate, 11th race (went to throw).
As a result, Boohl scored 26 points in 12 races (with two outliers). The second winner – Australian Matt Wyrne – he was 12 points ahead. The third Croatian Tonchi Stipanovich – and all at 38!
Now about the Russians. Recall that before the final day of the regatta, Sergei Komissarov took 15th place, and I wanted to believe that he was able to get closer to the top ten or even get into it. Alas, it didn’t work out. In three races Sunday was 16th, 32nd and 29th. As a result, 24th place and 138 points. Maxim Nikolaev finished nearby – 26th place and 143 points.
As for Daniil Krutskikh, he became the 12th in the Silver Fleet (164 points).
We emphasize that the current championship may have been the last for the legendary 47-year-old Brazilian rider Robert Scheidt, winner of five Olympic medals, including two gold ones. Alas, Scheidt turned out to be … the last, 42nd, in the Golden Fleet – however, you need to consider that at the end of the championship he was sick and could not get to the start of the three final races of the regatta.
