Golden Generation - Youth Olympic Games - 14th to 26th August 2010

This Wednesday 25th August 2010 for the final day and round of Techno 293 OD at the Youth Olympic Games, there was nothing more than a sea breeze of 6 - 8 knots at best, but enough to run this deciding round of competition...


After a great week where she had shown herself head and shoulders ahead of the competition, Thai rider Siripon Kaewduang-Ngam had no need to force the issue, coming in 4th in the race but still finishing in the gold medal position. Winner of this 11th round of racing was Italian rider Veronica Fanciulli carrying her to the silver medal place, followed by Singalese rider Audrey Pei Lin Yong in bronze.


In the boys event, Israeli rider Mayan Rafic claimed his gold medal in similar fashion, 4th place in the final race assuring him of first place overall, with the other leaders behind him effectively taking each other out of contention with Hong Kong rider Chun Leung Michael Cheng finishing 2nd overall ahead of English rider Kieran Martin in 3rd...


So these Youth Olympics drew to their close at the end of a superb event, a week of top quality battles out on the water, all in an exemplary spirit of sporting camaraderie between the competitors on the beach !
