Just over the 50th regatta Trofeo Princesa Sofia IBEROSTAR 2019, and already tomorrow there, in Mallorca, will be the first race of the Open championship in Windsurfing class RS:X.
The start of the championship promises to be extremely representative: if one of the strongest prefer to skip the “Princess Sophia” in preparation for “Europe”, now the “refuseniks” are almost there. For example, in Mallorca will be the winners as the 2016 Games in Rio-end of the 2018 world Cup in Aarhus.
But only to participate in the regatta intend 345 athletes from 43 countries and not only European. This, according to the official website of the championship – a record for the competition in the class RS:X.
The big team on Mallorca was sent to France (55 people) and Israel (39). The Russian team is much more modest: in the preliminary list of the Junior and adult competition included 11 of our windsurfers, among which we emphasize the bronze medalist of the Olympic games-2016 Elpatio Stephanie (for her it will be the first official start for six months). Of course, we have high hopes and Vladislav, Burmistenko and Alexander Askerov, who just “Princess Sophia” took the high 5th and 6th places respectively.
In General, we should expect great competition. Will be watching – and cheering!
