Medals decided in SKUD 18 on final day

'Canada won the Bronze Medal in the Skud 18 class at the 2008 Paralympics, Qingdao'    Dan Tucker    Click Here to view large photo

Although Nick Scandone and Maureen Mckinnon-Tucker of the USA had won the Gold medal in a canter yesterday, the Silver and Bronze medals were still in doubt going into Saturday's final day of racing in the two person SKUD 18 keelboat class at the 2008 Paralympics.

Australia won the Silver medal with Canada taking the Bronze, after two races were sailed today in 11-13kts winds on Fushan Bay, Qingdao to conclude the 2008 Paralympics.

The top three competitors dominated the racing all series and today was no different, with Scandone and Mckinnon-Tucker taking second place, in Race 9, in what may sadly be the last race of Scandone's life. The Gold Medallists elected not to start in the final race of the regatta winning by a healthy seven point margin, the biggest of the three classes sailing at Qingdao.

Daniel Fitzgibbon and Rachael Cox of Australia wrapped up the Silver medal with a first and second place in the two races sailed in very fresh 11-13kts winds to take second overall by three points from John Scott McRoberts and Stacie Louttit of Canada.

In fourth overall were Hailang Jia and Xiujua Yang of the host nation China, their best performing crew in this regatta, 14 points adrift of the Bronze medal.
