The battle for gold in the Laser Radial was one of the most intriguing of the World Cup final, and ultimately it went to Josefin Olsson SWE who had trailed Marit Bouwmeester NED by a single point overnight.
[quote_left author=””]“This is my first World Cup win so it feels great”, said Olsson, “It’s always good to win the final. It means a lot to be up there and fight it out with the top girls and get a podium position in the end.”[/quote_left]
While Olsson finished fourth on the day, Bouwmeester slipped to eighth in the Medal Race. Anne-Marie Rindom DEN, first to finish, subsequently collected a penalty but was still able to beat defending champion Evi Van Acker BEL to the bronze medal.
