Nike Kornicki and Vered Buskila, Israel's representatives in the women's 470 Class sailing competition finished their two races on Friday in third and first place. The result places the two in third place overall, with a sizeable lead over their competitors in the race for a medal. Meanwhile, windsurfer Shahar Tzuberi finished his fifth race in 17th place. Tzuberi decided, however, to activate his right to waive his worst result, which enabled him to hold on to his overall lead at the head of the competition.
