Posted On: 07/05/2004 10:05:30
In the Mistral Women there are again some bold appearances in the top flight from some of the younger sailors in the world. 2003 ISAF World Sailing Championship gold medallist Lee KORSIZ (ISR), following a strong presence on the tour this year, has almost emulated the rise of Tom ASHLEY, and has broken into the world's top 10 at 10, a rise of eleven places.
Jannicke STALSTROM (NOR) was ranked in 27 in the last ranking release, and she has also popped up in the top twenty, now residing firmly entrenched behind Amelie LUX (GER), following a 12 place finish at the 2004 World Championship in Turkey and a fifth in Hyeres.
Lee LAI-SHAN (HKG) is making her comeback to the top of the windsurfing tree as she builds up to represent Hong Kong in August. San-San, as Lee is known will be on a quest for the second sailing medal for Hong Kong since she won a Gold medal in Atlanta in 1996, the first gold medal in any sport ever achieved by the country. She is now in second and replaces Romy KINZL (GER), who has dropped to fourth. Faustine MERRETT (FRA) is another who has popped back into the top three, jumping from fifth to third.
The next ranking release will take place on 3 June 2004 up to and including the SPA Regatta in Medemblik, NED.
