IODA Optimist World Championship
31 Oct 14
Switzerland's Nicolas Rolaz has been crowned 2014 Optimist World Champion after a strong week of sail boat racing in Buenos Aires, Argentina.
Brazil has a proud record in Olympic sailing, in fact sailing is one of the nation's most successful Olympic sports. Torben Grael is the only sailor to have won five Olympic medals, whilst Robert Scheidt is only one behind with two golds and two silvers. At Beijing 2008 Fernanda Oliveira and Isabel Swan became the first female Brazilian sailors to win an Olympic medal. Brazil also showed its dedication to the future of the sport as it hosted the 2009 Volvo Youth Sailing ISAF World Championship with great success.
