Let's do arithmetic
Today at the World Championship in class 470, which continues on Enoshima Island in Japan, three races were held – both for men and women.
For men, the Spaniards Jordi Xammar / Nicholas Rodriguez climbed to the first line of the protocol – 8 points (in five races they have three first arrivals!).
Our Pavel Sozykin and Denis Gribanov after the second race day retreated from the 7th place they occupied to the 13th: now they have 28 points (with one surge), arrivals 9 – 2 – 12 – (12) – 5.
As you know, four Olympic licenses are played out at the championship in Enoshima, and the task of Pavel and Denis is to get one of them. It's time to do arithmetic.
A year ago, representatives of eight countries — Australia, Great Britain, Spain, Italy, New Zealand, the USA, France and Sweden — received licenses at the integrated world championships in Aarhus. Japan needs to be added to them – as the host country of the Games. All of them now, of course, do not participate in the struggle for trips to the Olympics. And this is basically just those who are now ahead of Sozykin and Gribanov.
But there are those who are involved. On the 9th place Balash Dyarpash / Zhombor Dyarpash from Hungary. At the 11th Turks Denise Sinar / Ates Sinar. On the 12th Panagiotis Mantis / Pavlos Kagialis from Greece.
It turns out that ours are in the treasured four. But there are still many races ahead, and we need to try to rise as high as possible in order to guarantee Russia a license. What do we want with Sozykin and Gribanov?
Now about the women's competition. Ai Kondo Yoshida and Miho Yoshioka from Japan, the leaders of the integrated 2018 World Cup in Aarhus, are 16 points (with one throw).
After five races, our Alisa Kirilyuk and Angelika Chernyakhovskaya are in the 23rd position – 75 points, arrivals 30 – 9 – 7 – (31) – 29.
And again arithmetic. Women are awarded 6 Olympic licenses. Here are the countries that have already acquired permits for the Games: Great Britain, Greece, Israel, Spain, Italy, China, Slovenia, France and all the same Japan.
Ahead of Alice and Angelica, in addition to representatives of these countries, there are athletes from Poland, Holland, Switzerland, Australia, Brazil and Germany. It turns out that our girls are the seventh, and the treasured ticket at arm's length!
But how hard it will be to get it!
