After six races, the French, Australian, and American boats all had a shot at the gold medal. The race started in very light winds, and nobody could finish within the time limit, so it was re-sailed the following day. The final race was won by New Zealand's [Rex Sellers] and [Brian Jones] but it was not enough to get them on the podium. When the French crew of [Yves Loday] and [Nicolas HÃ©nard] finished second, and the Americans, [Randy Smyth] and [Keith Notary], could only finish 11th, France had won gold. The Australians placed fifth in the final race, two spots away from a gold medal finish, and won the bronze medal, as New Zealand finished fourth. Sellars had won the gold medal in Tornado in 1984 and a silver medal in 1988. Smyth had also won a medal in the Olympic Tornado, silver behind Sellars in 1984.
