Israeli windsurfer Tzuberi still in contention for medal

Tzuberi finishes 4th in 10th race, now 4th in overall ranking; Davidovich qualifies for Olympic medal sail.

Israel's Olympic windsurfer Shahar Tzuberi finished fourth in the tenth race of the competition on Tuesday morning. Despite the good result, 22-year-old Tzuberi is still fourth overall, eight points behind New Zealand's Tom Ashley. Tzuberi's last chance to improve his position and win the first Israeli medal at the Beijing games will take place on Wednesday. Meanwhile, Israeli windsurfer Ma'ayan Davidovich, came in tenth at the Neil Pryde women sail competition on Tuesday, qualifying for the Olympic medal sail to take place on Wednesday. Her impressive achievement significantly surpasses the forecasts for the young windsurfer, who was sent to Beijing mainly in order to gain experience ahead of the 2012 games in London.
