The top 10 windsurfers qualified in the Men’s RS:X Class Medal Race all have a chance to take a position on the podium. However, like in the Women’s 470, the Radial and the Finn, the gold will be a dual between the top two; Beijing bronze and silver medallists Shahar ZUBARI (ISR) and Julien BONTEMPS (FRA). Behind them, any of the top eight sailors could win silver!
In the Women’s RS:X fleet, Peina CHEN (CHN) has seemingly picked up the baton from China’s Olympic gold medallist Jian YIN and leads going into tomorrow’s Medal Race. CHEN will face strong competition from experienced windsurfers, 2008 Olympic bronze medal Bryony SHAW (GBR), world #1 ranked Marina ALABAU (ESP) and Blanca MANCHON (ESP), leader of the ISAF Sailing World Cup Standings
