More Gold for Kendall
NZ sporting legend Barbara Kendall is back in the spotlight after winning the women’s RS:X windsurfing event at the Princess Sofia Trophy regatta in Palma, Spain. The three-time Olympic medallist was also named the overall Princess Sofia Trophy winner. NZ sailors won four more medals at the meet, with Tom Ashley taking gold in the men’s RS:X, Andrew Murdoch silver in the Laser Class, and Jo Aleh and Hamish Pepper bronze in the Laser Radial and Star classes. Contested by over 1000 sailors, the Princess Sofia Trophy is one of the best known Olympic regattas and is one of the six events in the International Sailing Federation’s World Cup series. The 2007 event was used by NZ Olympic selectors as a trial for next year’s Beijing Olympics.
