World Championship silver for Mills and Clark

19/10/2015

Olympic silver medallists and RTYC members Hannah Mills and Saskia Clark have claimed silver for Great Britain at the 470 World Championships, which concluded on the 17th October, in the Israeli port city of Haifa.

After a difficult penultimate race day, the British duo faced an uphill battle to try and wrest gold from the grip of the Austrian defending champions Lara Vadlau and Jolanta Ogar, who started the final 10-boat medal race with a near insurmountable 18 point lead.

The British duo had to win the race, with the Austrians finishing tenth to overtake them on the top step of the podium.

It was a tall order, but the 2012 World Champions Mills and Clark took on the fight and played their part to seal an emphatic medal race victory.
