On the final day of competition in Burc Beach, Turkey four medal races were run in both the men's and women's fleets crowning Maxime Nocher (FRA) and Steph Bridge (GBR) 2014 Formula Kite World Champions.
Oliver Bridge (GBR) was on fire today after the previous equipment upset, winning all four medal races and earning himself the bronze medal in this year's world championships. Nocher had a commanding 14 point lead after the opening series and played it safe, staying out of trouble and finishing 5-3-5-7 to stay three points ahead of silver medallist Riccardo Leccese (ITA) who just defended a one point lead over Bridge with a 3-2-2-2 score today.
In the women's fleet, Bridge won three out of four medal races, and extended her three point lead after the opening series. Last years world champion Erika Heineken (USA) dropped her kite in race three and couldn't finish the race, and with that 11 points on the scoreboard dropped down to third place. Seventeen year old Elena Kalinina (RUS) scored a solid 3-3-2-2 getting her up into second place.
Three more gold fleet races were run after the conclusion of the medal races, with Florian Trittel (ESP) claiming first place on a 2-1-1 score, Maks Zakowski (POL) coming second, and Torrin Bright (NZL) in third.
