Germany's Alina Kornelli continues dominance at the Youth Olympic Games

A dazzling display on the water from Alina Kornelli (GER) ensured she remains top of the Girl’s Kiteboarding fleet at the Youth Olympic Sailing Competition at Club Nautico San Isidro, Buenos Aires, Argentina.


Kornelli has won four out of five races so far, including two wins today, and is five points ahead of Sofia Tomasoni (ITA) in second and six points ahead of Nina Font (ESP) who is third.

“The last A final was really close between me and Nina; at the beginning I was first, then she was first, but I won it in the end,” Kornelli explained.

“I’m really happy with my results in the competition. I will try and stay focused and really do my best.”

In the Boy’s fleet, Slovenian kiteboarder Toni Vodisek moved into the top three with a win in the last race of the day.
“The wind was pretty light today; we had the 17s, the biggest kites we have, and we finished a race from yesterday before doing two more,” he said.

“Yesterday I was unlucky as the equipment I took was too small, but today with the same equipment it went better.”

Deury Corniel (DOM) lost his 100% record with two sixth places but keeps the overall lead, two points ahead of Cameron Maramenides (USA).

Racing continues at 12:00 local time on Thursday 11th October. It will be a reserve day for the Nacra 15 fleet, meaning only Kiteboarding and Windsurfing will be competing.
