 2.4m, Skud18, Sonar  Paralympic Games 2016  Rio de Janeiro BRA  Day 4
After yesterday's races sailed again in good conditions, the Paralympics are now in its crucial phase with another two heats today, and a final race tomorrow Saturday. The first decisions concerning the Medals will probably be made today already.
Daniel Fitzgibbon/Liesl Tesch AUS won again both races in the Skud-18 and have now a 15 points' lead and a 2nd race rank as discard result ! They will hardly miss the Gold Medal. On rank 2 follow at equal points John McRoberts/Jackie Gay CAN and Alexandra Rickham/Niki Birrell GBR, and with a 6 points' backlog, Monika Gibes/Piotr Cichocki POL remain within reach of the Medals. Leader change in the 2.4m with Matt Bugg AUS on top with the day ranks 2/1/1. But Helena Lucas GBR is only one point behind. Damien Séguin FRA advanced on the 3rd place with a 7 points' advantage on the 4th-ranked Dee Smith USA. Heiko Kröger GER, one of the co-favorites, dropped on rank 6 and his deficit on the podium is already 12 points. Australian is the lead also in the Sonars. Colin Harrison/Russell Boaden/Jonathan Harris AUS are ahead of Alphonsus Doerr USA and his team with a 10 points' advantage. Paul Tingley CAN - Paralympic 2.4m Gold-Medalist 2008 - moved up on rank 3 thanks to a race win, at equal points with Aleksander Wang-Hansen NOR on the 4th position. The chasers follow closely packed, and even Lasse Klötzing GER on rank 8 has still an option on the podium with a 7 points' backlog.
