Laser - Olympic Worldcup 2011 - Medemblik NED - Final Day, North Americans included
As expected, the Medal Races in the Laser classes, sailed again in a fresh, gusty and shifty breeze, did not change much in the podium positions. Only the Olympic medalist and former World Champion Lijia Xu CHN lost her 3rd place to Tina Mihelic CRO after capsizing. Gold and Silver went to Marit Bouwmeester NED and Evi Van Acker BEL. First of the Medal Race was Annalise Murphy IRL, winning 5 of the 10 heats, demonstrating her outstanding talent in the fresh breeze during this event. Two early start disqualification made her fall back on race 9 overall. Lisa Ross on rank 24 was the best Canadian, no US Radials sailing.
The 3rd position in the Medal Race was sufficient for Tom Slingsby AUS to celebrate an dominating victory in the Lasers Standard. Bruno Fontes BRA and Roeloof Bouwmeester NED defended their places on the podium. Brad Funk USA, rank 17, was the only USSTAG Laser Standard sailor. The best Mexican, Ricardo Montemayor, is on the 79th place.
The results, the report and the videos with interviews by the winners.
