USA Claims Gold At Aon Youth Sailing
Wiley Rogers and Jack Parkin of the United States have confirmed their gold medals at the Aon Youth Sailing Worlds in Auckland by winning two out of the two races on day four of the event. Both of them are pretty much excited at what they have achieved. They have won the gold medal on the penultimate day of the racing event.
Rogers said that there were a lot of dedication and hard work put in by them and this is why they were able to win the gold medal. The victory has not sunk in yet. They have attributed the win to their discipline, dieting, and hard work.
Both Rogers and Parkin have been at the best of their game all week and had a very good coordination and understanding of each other’s prowess. Parkin told Plain Sailing that a balanced diet was very important as they needed to be light for the boat. As the race is won by the Americans, now they can eat whatever they have been missing for some time. They are ready to lay their hands on anything that they find.
The second place went to Ido Bilik and Ofek Shalgi of Israel and they finished with 2.8 for the day. They will now have to fight it hard with the Argentinian sailors Fausto Peralta and Martin Arroyo Verdi to claim their second spot behind the USA team.
Tim Mourniac and Charles Dorange of Nacra 15 pair are leading the pack with 23 points and have won the gold medal. This is the third Youth Sailing Worlds gold medal for Dorange and he is over the moon. He is happy with his feet and says that it is an amazing feeling to win the gold medal once again. Dorange said that it was their great control, good tactics and speed that helped them to nail the race.
