PETALING JAYA: The postponement of the last two races was a blessing for Nuraisyah Jamil and Juni Karimah Nur Jamali as they improved by one rung to finish 19th overall in the women’s 470 class.

Nuraisyah-Juni ended their Olympic campaign by placing 17th in Race 9 and 11th in Race 10 at the Enoshima Yacht Harbour yesterday.

However, it was not enough for them to qualify for the medal contention race as only the top 10 go through. Race 9 and 10 were postponed due to light wind conditions.

Britain’s Olympic champion Hannah Mills and partner Eilidh McIntyre looks set for a successful title defence as they sit on top with 28 points.

France’s Camile Lecointre-Aloise Retornaz and Poland’s Agnieszka Skrzypulec-Jolanta Ogar are second and third with 42 and 46 points respectively.
