Saturday 31st July, and for this last competition day at the Techno 293 OD World Championships 2010 in Martigues, the wind finally decided to calm down, allowing 2 more rounds to be run in each of the 5 categories.
The favourites for honours, who had established themselves a significant lead in the previous days of big winds, took advantage of the last day to confirm their potential, meaning that in the girls competitions, Italian Marta Maggetti in the Under 15 section, and Israeli Neomi Cohen in the Under 17 section, took the top podium spots.
Meantime, in the boys competitions, where things had been very tight all week, nowhere more so than in the Under 17 class, the all-French battle between Gaël Cousin and Maxime Labat saw Cousin finally win out. They finished ahead of three racers, Mich Cheng Chun Leung from Hong Kong , Kieran Martin from England and Dutch contender Kiiran Badloe, all equal third. The Under 15 section was led home by the impressive young Russian Andrey Zagaynov , ahead of the Israeli Tomer Blum and the Italian Michel Cittadini.
The Techno 293 OD World Championships 2010 drew to its beautiful conclusion with some excellent young winners, who we may well see at the top of the Olympic rankings in the next few years. And the Techno 293 OD class itself came away boosted by a week of superb international competition, with more than 360 competitors from 4 continents attending ! An event marked by enormously increased success for Eastern and Asian countries, who look like they're going to be a force to be reckoned with in the years to come.
