Lorenzo brings home bronze medal
LORENZO CHIAVARINI returned from Miami with a bronze medal in his hand and his Olympic dreams looking closer.
The Mid Argyll-raised sailor navigated his way into fifth place in the Laser class medal race on Sunday January 29, edging compatriot and twotime world champion Nick Thompson off the third step of the podium by just one point.
Competing in the first world cup regatta of the Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games cycle, Chiavarini and his fellow British sailors left Miami with a six-medal haul between them.
Before winning bronze and accumulating extra points, Chiavarini was fifth in the world rankings.
The World Cup Series continues in April in Hyeres, south of France, and the final will be sailed in Santander, north of Spain, in June.
