The Germans are taking over.

by Jessica Statham on 26 Oct 2000
With six races completed and three races left, the 2.4mR class looks open to five medal condenters.

Philippe Balle (FRA) and Australia's Peter Thompson are on a parallel run both with 19 points. Germany's Heiko Kroeger (GER) is an obvious medal favorite with 3 wins and only three points separating him from second position holder Jens Als Anderson (DEN).

Competitors complete 9 races and then choose their worst two results. Thompson has had one disqualification and cannot afford not to be in the top of the fleet for the last three races.

Thomas Brown (USA) is sitting in third position with 17 points followed by Australia with 19 points.

Fleet Overall 2.4mR

1st GER 8 PTS, 2nd DEN 11 PTS, 3rd USA 17 PTS, 4th AUS 19 PTS, 5th FRA 19 PTS, 6th GBR 28 PTS, 7th NZL 33 PTS, 8th FIN 37 PTS, 9th NOR39 PTS, 10th ITA 47 PTS, 11th CAN 50 PTS, 12th ESP 57 PTS, 13th SWE 58 PTS, 14th EST 69 PTS, 15th JPN 72 PTS, 16th ARG 73, 17th RSA 76
