 470  World Championship 2012  Barcelona ESP  Day 5, the Swiss
The breeze was around 15 kn yesterday on the second day of the 470 Worlds final races in Barcelona. While the lonely ride of the defending champions in the men's class, Matthew Belcher/Malcom Page AUS, continues (rank 1 and 5 yesterday, 21 points advantage), another leader change happened in the women's class, but the points' gaps remain small. Hannah Mills/Saskia Clark GBR are now on top of the interims rankings with the same number of points as Lisa Westerhof/Lobke Berkhout NED. Jo Aleh/Olivia Powrie NZL follow on the 3rd place. Still in the race for medals are Lecointre/Géron FRA and Petitjean/Douroux FRA. The first nation qualifying for the Olympics is Denmark with Koch/Sommer DEN. Actually on rank 7, they cannot be passed. The worst ranked of the other five nations fighting for an Olympic berth is Russia at this moment. The Swiss Hasler/Hasler SUI and Testuz/Thilo SUI follow on the ranks 37 and 40.
Second at present behind the outstanding Belcher/Page AUS are Leboucher/Garos FRA, closely followed by Kliger/Sela ISR. As far as the fight for the Medal Race is concerned, there are 4 teams on the positions 9 to 12, separated by 6 points, battling for the top-10. Yannick Brauchli/Romuald Hausser SUI have taken the lead in the Silverfleet, i.e. rank 33 overall. The ranking lists, the daily report and the video of the day.
