After four days of incredibly well-balanced racing, Zsombor Berecz leads the Vilamoura Continental Race with 11 points after a fantastic day. It is interesting that the Hungarian Olympian is the only one on the field who, thanks to his confident lead, took the top ten in all his races.
“It was my day, but I wouldn’t say it was easy – Evaluation Perez Zsumpur At the end of the perfect day then he moved on to what he thought was more important: “The boating class is full of great sailors and wonderful people, making us the strongest team in the Olympic classes, both physically and mentally. When one says: a Finnish sailor, he represents the value, history and legend that is the property of the class. Every member of the field is proud to compete here and we are also ready to fight from Yeah. We have a lot of young talent who need a chance to measure themselves in the Olympics.”
Peric’s statement notes that one of the more male classes, the Finn, is the latest season to appear on the five-episode Games program in Tokyo, but the stadium is having trouble convincing the IAAF to change that decision.
Back in the European Championships: Beric’s 11-point advantage can be said to be confident and impressive, especially considering he is followed by Olympic and four-time world champion Giles Scott.
There is no medal race in this race at the request of the competitors, so the fate of the gold medal will be decided in both races on Friday. If all goes according to plan (or at least as it has so far), Peric could bring back the Immigration Cup he took to Portugal on Friday as the defending champion.
