news - 4th rank for Marinepool team at 49er World championship!

Jan 11 2010

The Team of Emmanuel Dyen and Stephane Christidis (FRA) came an excellent 4th in the 49er World championships which conluded on Jan. 11 on the Bahamas!

A place on the podium was entirely possible but unfortunately the morning races of the last day did not see them in the form they showed over the course of the World championship. They scored their discard in a 12th in the first race of the day and finished 9th in the second adding 19 points to their score, while in the end only 6 points were missing for bronze.

On the podium it was all familiar faces. Iker Martinez/Xabi Fernandez added a third gold medal from World championships to the two gold they won earlier in 2002 and 2004. They had also won gold in the Athens Olympic Games and silver in Beijing.

Second came double World champions Nathan Outteridge and Iain Jensen from Australia, third where the Italian Sibello brothers.

Congratulations to the guys on the Marinepool team and to the medallists!
