All with Mattia for the last “bloody” regatta worth of history

Mattia Camboni

Set your alarm and prepare a good breakfast, because cheer and energy will be needed tomorrow: Mattia Camboni at 2:40 p.m. in Enoshima, 8:40 a.m. in Italy, will take to the water for his medal race in the RS:X. The regatta will be broadcast by RAI, which will probably connect only seconds before the start, while extensive coverage of the final is guaranteed on Discovery Plus. There is little math to be done: Mattia is two points behind Frenchman Thomas Goyard, three ahead of Pole Piotr Myszka. Need to finish ahead of them to go in the hunt for Olympic silver, remembering that the medal race score counts double and China’s Kun Bi is 13 points behind. The forecast is for light winds, probably less than 10 knots, interesting conditions for Mattia Camboni’s physical and technical characteristics. This is the last step, the most important step of these four years, the one that is worth a career. Also in the water for the medal race, among the women, will be Marta Maggetti, fourth, who, however, is mathematically out of the medal game.

In the Women’s Lasers pride shot of Silva Zennaro who confirms herself as the loose cannon of this Olympics. The girl from Chioggia not only hits the medal race, but does so by even entering it as fifth and with chances to fight for bronze, beyond eve’s expectations. His medal is scheduled for Sunday morning. The gaps are minimal and anything can happen in the Final: the ranking still sees Denmark’s Anne-Marie Rindom (today in crisis: 26-DSQ) in the lead with 64 points, followed by Holland’s Marit Bouwemeester with 71, Sweden’s Josefin Olsson with 79, then Canada’s Sarah Douglas (82), Belgium’s Emma Plasschaert (84), Italy’s Silvia Zennaro (84), and Finland’s Tuula Tenkinen (87). Completing the Final, more detached, are Norway’s Flem Hoest (101), Greece’s Vasileia Karachaliou (106) and England’s Allison Young (117).

470 Women’s – Two more 470 races also ran on the day. Elena Berta and Bianca Caruso also in their third day alternated results (8-16), and are in 10th place in the overall ranking after 6 trials. In the lead always were the Poles Agnieszka Skrzypulec and Jolanra Ogar, second were the British Hannah Mills and EWilidh McIntyre, and third were the French Camille Lecointre and Aloise Retornaz. Tomorrow the 470 rests.

470 Men’s – Light wind revives Romans Giacomo Ferrari and Giulio Calabrò, who with two good runs (9-4) move up the rankings and return to the top-10 with 9th place, with scores not far from the top areas, and with weather forecasts indicating light wind in the coming days as well.
