Today was the final day she will race as a Youth. She moves up to the Olympic Fleet now and new challenges. For now, let us dwell on her remarkable achievements as a youth. Her record is truly exceptional.
At this championship, she took time to get her head into the racing. The results in the first 4 races show this. Then she found her usual grip and moved up a gear. From that moment on, no-one stood a chance of heading her. Laura finished with a 6 point cushion and declared herself satisfied with her performance.
We wish her success in her future in the Olympic fleet. Italy may well have found an athlete who can grow and mature into another great Olympic Champion. To fill the shoes of the great Alessandra Sensini will not be easy but if anyone has the potential, surely it must be Laura Linares!
