Laser Radial - Women's World Championship 2012 - Boltenhagen GER - Final Results
Light winds and (not surprisingly) many Rule 42 (pumping) penalties influenced the outcome of the last two races of the Laser Radial Worlds at the German Baltic Sea coast. Among the athletes penalised by the Jury were Sari Multala FIN and Alison Young GBR out of the title race after this sanction. This was the chance for the Olympic Silver medalist Gintare Scheidt LTU to earn her first Worlds title. 10 points behind follows Lijia Xu CHN as 2nd, Sari Multala FIN took finally the Bronze Medal. An impressive last day came from Erika Reineke USA, age 18, the superior winner of the U-21-classification, finishing the Championship on the 8th place overall as best US women at equal points with Paige Railey USA.
