No luck for the Swiss on the last day of the qualification phase at the Laser Worlds. The light wind specialist Guillaume Girod SUI could not defend his place in the Goldfleet despite of the slack wind conditions, dropping on rank 62. He will continue the Championship in the Silverfleet as do Christian Steiger SUI (69th) and Christoph Bottoni SUI (72nd). With this situation it is clear, that no Swiss Laser will be at the 2012 Olympics in Weymouth/London. At the (big breeze) Hyères Worldcup last week, Christoph Bottoni SUI - with the best result of his career - missed the nations' objective set by Swiss Olympic by a very small margin. To be noted, that contrary to other Olympic classes, the Laser Worldcups have practically always a top nations participation and in no other class, the 12 nations' barrier requested by Swiss Olympic is so demanding.

The new second-ranked is Andreas Geritzer AUT ahead of a closely packed chaser group with Tonci Stipanovic CR, David Wright CAN, Juan Maegli GUA and Andrew Maloney NZL, and even Simon Grotelüschen GER as 8th is only 9 points behind rank 2.

No luck for the Swiss on the last day of the qualification phase at the Laser Worlds. The light wind specialist Guillaume Girod SUI could not defend his place in the Goldfleet despite of the slack wind conditions, dropping on rank 62. He will continue the Championship in the Silverfleet as do Christian Steiger SUI (69th) and Christoph Bottoni SUI (72nd). With this situation it is clear, that no Swiss Laser will be at the 2012 Olympics in Weymouth/London. At the (big breeze) Hyères Worldcup last week, Christoph Bottoni SUI - with the best result of his career - missed the nations' objective set by Swiss Olympic by a very small margin. To be noted, that contrary to other Olympic classes, the Laser Worldcups have practically always a top nations participation and in no other class, the 12 nations' barrier requested by Swiss Olympic is so demanding. The results.
