Silver for Mills and ClarkSubscribe
James Skitt 10 August 2012
Hannah Mills and Saskia Clark won a silver medal, Team GB’s second of the day in Weymouth, after losing out to New Zealand in their women’s 470 medal race.
Sharing the lead ahead of the final race, both crews were already assured of a medal but knew whoever finished first would take the Olympic title.
However despite a good start, the British duo were undone by a big wind shift on the opposite side of the course which benefited their rivals Jo Aleh and Olivia Powrie, who won the race to clinch overall gold.
The Netherlands Lisa Westerhof and Lobke Berkhout took the bronze medal.
