MAT BELCHER AND WILL RYAN (AUS) SECURED GOLD IN MEN'S 47008 Jun 2019
Racing concluded in the 470's fleets ahead of their Medal Races on Sunday 9 June.
Australia's Mat Belcher and Will Ryan have all but confirmed gold in the Men's 470. The Australians are 20-points clear of Jordi Xammar and Nicolás Rodriguez (ESP). Only a penalty during Sunday's Medal Race could see them lose the gold medal and that is also dependent on the Spaniards winning the race.
Xammar and Rodriguez have an 11-point advantage over the third placed Hippolyte Machetti and Sidoine Dantes (FRA). However the French are just three points clear of Sweden's Anton Dalhlberg and Fredrik Bergström and may be more concerned with defending their podium spot than attacking the Spaniards.
The race for gold in the Women's 470 will go down to the wire in Sunday's Medal Race. After two final fleet races, Just one point separate Hannah Mills and Eilidh McIntyre (GBR) and Camille Lecointre and Aloise Retornaz (FRA) and they have enough points over the rest of the fleet that whoever finishes ahead of the other on Sunday will win gold.
Medal Races are scheduled to start at 12:00 local time on Sunday 9 June.
