Slammed the door – or not?
Two-time Olympic champion (2012, 2016) in RS: X class 31-year-old Dorian van Rijsselberg from the Netherlands immediately after the end of the World Championships in Sorrento (Australia) announced that he was completing his performances.
It should be noted that van Rijsselberg, having won the medal race, became the silver medalist of the 2020 World Cup. It would seem more than a decent result, but …
The thing is that he lost (just two points!) To another representative of the Netherlands – Kieran Badloe. And that means that he lost his ticket to the Olympics-2020 to his permanent rival, about which he dreamed of speaking (and winning!).
Fans of Dorian, however, hope that the decision of their favorite concerns only the RS: X class, which, as you know, will soon cease to be Olympic, and iFoil will take its place.
