49er medal race will be exciting. 3 boats within 4 points of each other in a double scoring race..Finn GBR
49er FX GBR
Mens Windsurfer NED
Womens Windsurfer CHN
Women 470 GBR
Men 470 AUS
Laser Radial .....not sure , NED
GBR women 470 have sailed into a 1 point lead for the first time in the regatta.
My pick in Nacra is not going to get Gold or Silver and moving up one spot to Bronze is a tall order. But I could not be happier for Gimson, who is certain of a medal and hopefully keeps silver. Its been a long road for a nice guy.
On a more somber note, where are our US team hopefuls?
We dont have a single medal prospect.
We're just trying to get into medal races.
In 6 classes we failed to get a boat into the medal race at all. In the mens windsurfer we qualified to finish 9th overall. In the Nacra class we have qualified in 9th.
In the two remaining 470 events we lie in 9th place in the womens (after a fantastic 8th race) and 11th place in the Mens
At best we will scrape into 4 medal races and we face the prospect of 9th being our best finish.
