Windsurfing World Cup: Sharon Kantor won the first place Israel today


A day before the medal cruise, the Israeli won twice and overtook Spain's Pillar Madrid. Three Israeli women are in places 3-5 and will fight for a place on the podium

Today (Thursday) Sharon Kantor rose to first place overall, in the Windsurfing World Cup in Lanzarote, Spain, while overtaking Spain's Pillar Madrid, with two victories in the opening races of the day.

Kantor is currently leading by two points over Madrid, when tomorrow will be the day of qualifying sailing, which will decide who will finish in first place, win a direct ticket to the final and actually guarantee a medal.

Tomorrow Kantor will wear the yellow jersey, which marks the leader of the competition.

Three more Israeli women are in places 3-5 and will fight for places 2-3, which guarantee a place in the semi-finals on Saturday.

Kati Spichkov started the day with a weak sailing, but then improved and won two sailings, Shahar Tibi is placed right after her and closes the top five Maya Morris, who continues the trend of improvement and went up two places today.

Also in the top ten is Daniela Peleg, who today dropped from fifth to eighth place.

In windsurfing, competitors can throw the two sails with the worst results in the competition, but Peleg had to withdraw from yesterday's marathon sail and earned the maximum score in it, so she cannot afford to make mistakes tomorrow.

In men, an excellent day for Tom Reuvani and Yoav Cohen, who climb up the general ranking.

Reuveni is placed at the end of the day in third place overall, after cruises in places 7,1,11.7.

Yoav Cohen, the Olympic sailor from Tokyo 2020, also climbed to fourth place, with sailings in places 1, 8, 6, 13.

Cohen, who competed in Tokyo on the RSX model and had trouble getting used to the new IQ Foil model, is getting better and better in recent months and with Reuveni and Yoav Omer continues to threaten the world top.

Also in the picture of the medal boats is Yoav Omar, who is currently in 16th place, 21 points away from tenth place.

In the IQ Foyle model, the top ten enter the medal races, where the scoring is reset and the competitions in the quarter and semi-finals are conducted by a knock-out method, with the first two qualifying for the next stage.

Tomorrow the last four cruises will be held, which will determine which of the Israelis will advance to the medal cruises, which will be held on Saturday.
