The 2013 Italian Olympic Week Garda has come to a close. We look at the action that took place via comments and video interviews with sailors that competed.
Quotes from Annalise Murphy:
'It was nice to win the event because I have been leading quite alot of events lately and things haven’t gone so well for me in the medal races which has been disappointing...So, it is important for me to go out today. I did not want to end up messing up the medal race. It was definitely a worth while thing for me'.
'I don’t think this format works...'
'ISAF is trying to make sailing more exciting.'
Quotes from Andy Maloney:
'The Race was exciting because the places were changing so much'.
'Right in the last hundred meters or so, I got the last gust of wind and probably crossed the line just in front of him'.
'I said I was going to go and just try and win the race and have a good day and did that.'
'Today probably proves how dumb the format they've tried for this event is'.
'I think going into today, the only two people who really deserved to win over the course of the five days were Tom Burton and Tonci who were close on points. But the other four of us probably didn't really, none of us really deserve to win the regatta you know. It really proves how this format shouldn't carry on.'
'Going into today anyone had a chance of winning, which was silly in a sense.'
