Lee Korzits continued her impressive run of form on Sunday, claiming the silver medal at the European windsurfing Championships in Burgas, Bulgaria, after ending the concluding medal race in second place.

The 27-year-old, who became the youngest ever windsurfing world champion in 2003, was close to retirement two years ago, but has been steadily improving since returning to competition last year and is starting to look like one of Israel’s best medal hopes at next summer’s London Olympics.

Ma’ayan Davidovich ended the competition in 10th place.

Shahar Zubari just missed out on claiming his third consecutive medal at the Europeans, dropping one place to fourth after ending Sunday’s medal race in eighth position.

Zubari, who won the gold at the last two continental championships, finished just two points behind Spain’s Ivan Pastor Lafuente.

Israel’s bronze medalist from the Beijing Olympics can at least console himself with the knowledge that he has opened a lead in the battle to represent Israel in London after his main rival Nimrod Mashiah ended the Europeans in eighth place.

Each country can only send one windsurfer to the Olympic competition.
