Two Golds For Cyprus In Sailing

LIMASSOL, 5 June 2009 - Strong winds brought a premature end to the XIII Games of the Small States of Europe sailing event with hosts Cyprus emerging the eventual big winner on Friday.

The high winds in Limassol prompted the Games Committee to bring an early conclusion to six races which had seen Cyprus leading the pack in two of them.

The committee's decision was received with protests by Monaco who called for an additional race, something which was not sustained. The previous races had taken place on Wednesday and Thursday and were meant to finish on Friday but the committee was forced to finalise the concurrent standings of the sailing athletes based on their position in the race.

The final standings saw Cyprus secure two gold medals through Pavlos Kontides in the laser event and Natasa Christodoulou in the laser radial race.

Elsewhere, Malta came first in the optimist event through Thomas Zammit Tabona and Monaco’s Marina Prat also won the gold in the women’s event. The most medals were won by Monaco and Cyprus with five each.

Cyprus' Mary Solomonidou won the bronze medal in the optimist event at just age 13.
