Anton Didenko (R163) from Vladivostok took third place in the Golden Fleet at the world championship in ice boating in the buer class DN. Our boerists have not had such success since the days of the USSR!
Here’s what the Seven Feet Yacht Club Press Center reported: “Vladivostok boerist Anton Didenko won the DN World Championship bronze medal. The competition ended yesterday, February 13, at Lake Orsa in Sweden. 137 of the world's strongest racers took part in the races on buoys from Poland, Switzerland, Finland, Germany and other countries.
The ice and wind conditions on Lake Orsa turned out to be difficult, the ice on the lake was covered with a 10-cm layer of melted water, there was not enough wind. In these conditions, the judges managed to conduct only four races in three days. The main rivals of the athlete from Vladivostok were Poles, multiple world champions Lukash Zakrzhevsky and Karol Yablonsky. Karol came to the finish line three races in a row, Zakrzhevsky showed the most stable parishes. The best result of Vladivostok is the fourth parish, and the result is a bronze medal.
In the sports career of Anton Didenko, this is the first world championship. The 24-year-old yachtsman from Vladivostok quickly burst into the world of ice boating last year, winning the European Championship among juniors and winning third place in the world championship. This victory has already become a historic event for Russian boating sports, because none of the domestic athletes has yet achieved such a high result. The past World Cup only strengthened the position of the athlete.
Another strong driver from Vladivostok, Valery Dichenko, also took part in the competition. In the second race, he collided with the Swede in the crash, as a result of his buer out of order.
The young athlete Polina Artyukh also took part in the World Cup, her result is the second place among girls in the bronze fleet. "
