Russian and Israeli windsurfers continue fight for medals at the Youth Olympic Games
Posted On:  12/10/2018 10:08:48

Ahead of Friday's Medal Race, the battle to claim a spot on the podium amplified in the Windsurfing class at the Youth Olympic Sailing Competition at Club Nautico San Isidro, Buenos Aires, Argentina.

Shifting winds on the coldest day of the week so far brought new challenges for the Girl's and Boy's fleets, but both were able to complete three races each. However, Tuesday's postponed slalom elimination race could not be finished, and will be abandoned.

And the podium places are by no means wrapped up yet. Both fleets have the prospect of two very different fights for a bronze medal. Boy's windsurfer Tomer Vardimon (ISR) and girl's windsurfer Yana Reznikova (RUS) both sit on the outskirts in their respective fleets in fourth place.

Reznikova won one of today's three races in the Girl's fleet and is now only two points behind third-placed Naama Gazit (ISR).

"It was cold but I enjoyed my day on the water, and I'm happy with my results," she said.  "When I came here I just wanted to enjoy this amazing and wonderful experience - I didn't think about medals."

Vardimon has a tougher battle on his hands, as third-placed Finn Hawkins (GBR) is 11 points ahead of him, but he has accumulated more top-three finishes than his British opponent so far this week and will hope for a strong medal race tomorrow.

"Third place [Hawkins] has gained a few points on me, but I will try to catch him tomorrow," said Vardimon. "“I can learn from every single race here. It would be great to win a medal."

Both Alexandros Kalpogiannakis (GRE) and Giorgia Speciale (ITA) are in pole position to claim gold in their respective fleets.

Speciale is an astonishing 17 points ahead of Manon Pianazza (FRA) in second place - the Italian has only finished outside the top three once, a fourth place in Race 11 which she discards. 

The gap between Kalpogiannakis and second-placed Nicolo Renna (ITA) is a smaller seven points, with the two exchanging firsts and seconds for most of the week.

Tomorrrow's final windsurfing race is non-discardable and to claim gold Speciale needs to finish in the top 17 and Kalpogiannakis in the top seven.
