Sailing: Bryony Shaw finishes 4th at European Championships

July 6, 2014

Great Britain’s Bryony Shaw just missed out on a medal at the RS:X European Championships in Turkey, finishing fourth.


The 2008 Olympic bronze medallist finished three points outside the medals at the six day regatta where Friday’s penultimate day of competition had to be abandoned due to excessive wind speeds and big seas.

“I started well but a bad second day dropped me out of the top three,” said 31-year-old Shaw on Saturday.

France’s Charline Picon successfully defended her European title, with Spain’s Marina Alabau Neira in second and Zofia Noceti-Klepacka of Poland taking bronze.

Meanwhile Britain’s other competitor  Izzy Hamilton ended her regatta in 13th.
