Optimist World Championships
The Brasilian champion Robert Scheidt (two Olympic medals with Star class won in Bejing (2008, silver) and in London (2012, bronze), three Olympic medals with Laser (gold in Atlanta and Athens, silver in Sydney) though preparing for Rio 2016 does not want to miss supporting the Brasilian team competing in the World Championships in Riva del Garda. Scheidt some years ago decided to move to Garda Trentino, thanks to exceptional wind conditions ideal for the sailing. During the race, with his Laser he approached the course area to follow the races of young Brasilian sailors engaged in the World Championships. The Championship organized by Fraglia Vela Riva has 58 nations and the best 259 young sailors around the world.
A great example for all the participants, not only for Brasilian guys, a true idol considering the five Olympic medals and his being so determined to win another medal in Rio 2016!
