Olympic Worldcup 2017/18 - Gamagori JPN - Final results

 Olympic Worldcup 2017/18 - Gamagori JPN - Final results This morning UTC, the remaining Medal Races were on the program of the Olympic Classes Worldcup in Japan. However, the approaching typhoon prompted the Race Committee to cancel racing prematurely and the 470 men and RS:X men could not sail their final race.
Matthew Belcher/Will Ryan AUS were therefore the clear winners in the 470 men ahead of Isozaki/Takayanagi JPN and Imamura/Hokazono JPN.
In the 470 women, the World Champions Agnieszka Skrzypulec/Irmina Mrozek POL demonstrated their superiority winning the Medal Race in very shifty winds. Ai Kondo/Miho Yoshioka JPN had no problem defending Silver. Bronze however was won by the 5th placed Cassandre Blandin/AloƮse Retornaz FRA finishing second after a very clever race relegating Linda Fahrni/Maja Siegenthaler SUI, concentrating their race on the previously 4th Benedetta di Salle/Alessandra Dubbini ITA on rank 4.
The only North American qualified for a Medal Race was Erika Reineke USA in the Lasers Radial with the results below in a separate news text.

The final results of the best North Americans by nation:
470 men: 13th Stu McNay/Dave Hughes USA
49er: 17th Judge Ryan/David Liebenberg USA

In the 49ersFX, the Medal Races completely change the podium.

Isozaki/Yakatanagi JPN and Luke Patience/Chris Grube GBR are now the first challengers. In the 470 women, Agniszka Przybytek/Irmina Mrozek POL extended their lead on the 2nd Ai Kondo/Miho Joshioka JPN to 9 points. Linda Fahrni/Maja Siegenthaler SUI lost lost one place and are now solid 3rd one point behind 2nd and 8 pts ahead of 4th.
