Summary

The Greek crew of Sofia Bekatorou and Aimilia Tsoulfa had won the last four World Championships in 470 and dominated this event in Athina. They won five of the first 10 races, and placed second in three others, to take a huge lead that allowed them to skip the final race and still win the gold medal. This was Tsoulfa’s third, and final, Olympic appearance, but Bekatorou switched to the Yngling class and won a bronze medal at the 2008 Olympics. Spain’s [Natalia Vía Dufresne], crew member on the silver medal boat, had also won a silver medal in the one-person dinghy at the 1992 Olympics.
