Surfer Gal Zuckerman finished fourth today (Sunday) at the European Championship in Kate Foyle, which is being held in Greece, after winning the semi-final race in a convincing manner and advancing to the final stage, where the Frenchwoman Lorraine Nolleau won the European title.
The final day of the Irpa Championship in Kate Foyle (Parachute Surfing) opened with strong winds.
The two Israeli contestants in the semi-finals, Gal Zuckerman and Mia Ashkenazi, entered the same house, so only one of them could make it to the final.
In the semi-final cruise, Zuckerman dominated from the first moment, finishing first and advancing directly to the final.
In the final race, Zuckerman knew that she would have to achieve at least one victory in order to secure a place on the podium, a significant challenge because her opponent, Rollaine Nolleau from France, led throughout the competition and needed a single victory to win the gold.
The final cruise began with the Israeli in third place, as she tries to catch up with her opponent for the bronze medal, Spain's Gisele Burrell, who eventually finished second, leaving Zuckerman off the podium.
"It was a very tough competition," she said at the end, smiling.
"The format in the competition gives a big advantage to the leaders in the qualifiers, which this time I was not able to close. All the competitors go straight from here to the world championships, which will start next week, and there the goal is to screw higher already in the qualifiers."
