The Jewish Chronicle - - SPORT -

SAIL­ING Olympic cham­pion Jo Aleh ex­pe­ri­enced heart­break on the fi­nal day of the 470-class com­pe­ti­tion in Athens.

Ly­ing sec­ond go­ing into the clos­ing medal race, Aleh and Olivia Powrie cap­sized at the Euro­pean Cham­pi­onships and had to set­tle for bronze af­ter a mis­take at the first mark cost them dearly in an event which car­ried dou­ble points.

Aus­trian crew Lara Vad­lau and Jolanta Ogar won gold while Bri­tish duo Han­nah Mills and Saskia Clark jumped a place to earn sil­ver.
