“We did a great job!”

Results world championship class RS:X, held in Saint-Petersburg, RUS for the page Youth Sailing Team Facebook failed senior coach of the youth national team Anastasia Chernova and others.

That said Chernov: “the Youth team in class RS:X among girls, made in Saint-Petersburg perfectly. Gold medal Yana Reznikova was the crowning work of the whole team in this class. The guys were very well qualified – someone could do better, someone worse, but, nevertheless, the gold in the women’s RS:X proves that we are moving in the right direction. By this victory the Jan brought her personal qualities, character of a leader and a fighter, faith in their victory and will power.

Very well made and Anastasia Shchedrin. I think if at the beginning of the regatta, someone said that Nastya is such a high 5-e a place nobody would believe. For it is the first international competition in the class RS:X. In the class of “Techno” at the sportswoman was not big wins, so 5 th place is high and very good result in the new Olympic class. Given the Joint has occupied 11-e a place, which is quite good.

Other athletes in the youth team made, in my opinion, below their capacity. Maybe with the weather im not really lucky, maybe do not fully tuned into these races. Of course, for most guys affected by the lack of international experience of participation in major competitions.

I want to thank all athletes, coaches who prepared the boys with the team and independently – at home! We did a great job and the gold medal Yana Reznikova is our common result!”

…Let’s remember once again about the events of the last race, but through the eyes of our athletes.
On the final day of the world championship, windless weather hardly helped to focus, because everyone wanted to do their best, regardless of what fleet they had to act. The calm was replaced with a wind of 5-6 knots, and to start out windsurfers gold and silver fleet and the fleet girls. Only the top 10 remained on the shore, preparing for the ultimate – the medal race. Among them was a “dark horse” of the Russian team – Anastasia Shchedrin.
“Of course, we all dreamed about the podium but I did not expect that I actually get to enter the top ten at the world championship! It was just incredible! Before the medal race we had time to rest, to gather, while the remaining participants passed the distance of the final race. But this time, we were only able to get nervous more. And I managed to gather only 10 seconds before the start…” – says the athlete.

For the competition, she every day improved their results – from the 23rd position rose to 7th place and steadily moved up to 5th. To surprise a girl could in the final medal race. Anastasia struggled in the top 3, which certainly played into the hands of Yana Reznikov, before which stood the question of who will win at this world championship.

Before the medal race, the Frenchwoman Manon Pianezza overtook the leader of the Russian national team on three points, and how race takes place, solved a lot.
“When Ian took a start, we are very worried for her, but after the first loop she had a decent lead, but her opponent was not very good,” said Anton Tokarev, who along with the team supported our athletes.
“When I realized that I would be able to take part in the medal race, but to compete for the first place – the emotions captured, but had to take himself in hand, to settle down and start working. I was able to do it all. To overcome even some fear and enjoy this race. At the competition I got a lot of experience, especially in terms of tactics, thanks to debriefings immediately after each race. Began to better understand the wind, to see the gusts. That is tactical awareness was of great importance in the medal race, where it is important to control the opponent and understanding benefits, as well as the availability plan,” such result was brought Yana Reznikova at the end of the world championship.

Congratulations to Jan and all the coaches who helped prepare the athlete with a gold medal!
All athletes and their coaches with great success and good results at the world championship!
