After a long day spent waiting for wind under postponement, only one of the five scheduled Medal Races was completed on the final day of the Ready Steady Tokyo - Sailing, Olympic Test Event.

With the exception of the Women's 470 fleet, yesterday's standings will determine the final results for the classes who had Medal Races scheduled for today.

The US Sailing Team had three representatives that were meant to compete in the Men's 470 and the Women's Laser Radial Medal Races. Thanks to their results earlier in the week, Stu McNay (Providence, R.I.) and Dave Hughes (Miami, Fla.) will remain in fourth place among the Men's 470 athletes and Erika Reineke (Fort Lauderdale, Fla.) will remain in eighth place in the Women's Laser Radial fleet. Also ranked in the top-ten, McNay, Hughes, and Reineke are joined by U.S. Women's 49erFX athletes, Stephanie Roble (East Troy, Wisc.) and Maggie Shea (Wilmette, Ill.), who finished the event in tenth place as of yesterday's 49erFX Medal Race.

Despite the anti-climactic end, McNay and Hughes are pleased to walk away with a top-five finish this week. "We're buoyed by our result this week," said Hughes. "While we didn't come out of the blocks as hot as we needed to early in the week, our back nine races were solid, so we're very happy about that. At the last Test Event in 2015, we were leading at some point and then ultimately got seventh, so to finish fourth with a mathematical shot at the podium is a really good result for us going into the Games year."

All of the competitors that represented the U.S. at this event will be heading straight into the Hempel World Cup Enoshima next week, with the exception of Women's laser Radial athlete, Paige Railey (Clearwater, Fla.), and Women's RS:X athlete, Farrah Hall (Annapolis, Md.).

In addition to the Test Event sailors, several other American athletes will join the U.S. contingent at the World Cup. Racing is scheduled to begin on Tuesday, August 27, and run through Sunday, September 1.
