Olympic Worldcup 2012 - Sail for Gold - Weymouth GBR - Day 5, the North American Teams
After the cancellation of the Friday and partly the Thursday races it is firm, that USA will be represented in three Medal Races with Zach Railey 3rd in the Finns, Clark/Lihan 4th in the 470 women - both with excellent chance for a medal - and Charlie Buckingham 10th in the Lasers Standard. Storck/Moore 49er 12th, McNay/Biehl 470 men 12th, Mendelblatt/Fatih Starboat 13th and Paige Railey Laser Radial 13th were deprived of their chances to fight for the top-10 unfortunately. Anna Tunnicliffe and her team will meet Silja Lehtinen FIN in the Woman Matchrace Quarter Final.
Canada has Clarke/Björn 4th in the Starboat, only 4 points behind the leader, as excellent canditate for one of the Medals in the final race today. Greg Douglas, 11th Finn, Nicola Girke 12th RS:X women and Zach Plavsic 15th RS:X men had chances for the top-10 if all races had been sailed.
Mexico was far from the Medal Races this time. See the Country Results (click thru for complete athletes' lists by nation) for the details.
