Was close.

Yoav Omer, the Israeli IQ Foil surfer, finished the European Windsurfing Championship in Italy in fourth place today (Sunday).

Omar started the medal cruises in the quarterfinals with an excellent cruise and victory, which lifted him to the semi-finals, where he competed against representatives from Italy, France and the UK.

In order to qualify for the final and secure a medal, Omar had to finish in one of the first two places, but his weak leap placed him third throughout the race, with the difference not closing until the end.

Omar remained very encouraged by the achievement and said: "There was good competition. The quarter-final was excellent but the half-time jump caused me to chase the leaders all the way. I showed good ability this week and was relatively stable. Overall I am satisfied."

The coach, Gal Friedman: "Yoav did an excellent competition. I knew he was coming to a high level competition, but I could not know exactly how it ended. During the competition he managed to rise in the moment of truth and beat competitors on paper faster than him. He will be able to threaten a medal in any competition. "

In the women, disappointment for Daniela Peleg and Shachar Tibi, who both disqualified early in the quarterfinals and finished the competition.

Shahar Tzobari, coach of the women's team - "First goal competition this year, a successful competition overall, with two women in the final. Although we had an unstable competition, I am convinced that the athletes learned a lot and as a team we learned a lot. In 4 months the world championship and goal is clear. "

An achievement was recorded in women with a double Israeli podium in the U21 category (up to the age of 21), with Daniela Peleg winning the gold medal and Sharon Kantor Bard.

The sailing association expresses satisfaction with the championship results - "We came to the championship with two big teams, a training team and a professional envelope," says Shai Buber, chairman of the sailing association. "The teams show significant progress throughout the campaign, both men and women .

I thank our athletes who gave their all to bring achievement.

It was close and next time we will also return with medals in the seniors. "
