The Medal Race for the 49er was sailed today. The event had been largely determined by Monday, when Australia and New Zealand built an unbeatable points lead, and the Gold and Silver Medals were decided.
The Bronze medal was all that was being decided today with three teams in with a chance.
Sail-World's camera was there to take in the action
