Gold, Silver, Bronze — the complete set of medals of the Olympic Games in front of Rio de Janeiro (Brazil) shines at the Kieler Woche 2020 (September 5-13) in the Olympic one-handed class Laser Radial.

The 2016 Olympic champion, four-time and reigning World Champion Marit Bouwmeester from the Netherlands will meet Annalise Murphy (Ireland/Silver) and Anna Marie Rindom (Denmark/Bronze) on the Kiel Fjord.

93 Laser-Radial-Sailors from all over the world (30 nations) have registered for Kieler Woche and only 60 starters will be allowed to sail based on the maximum number of registrations. The only exception is the wildcard for the top ten of the Olympic Games and the recent World Championship.

"We will not make any compromises when planning the sailing competitions. For example, we will adhere to existing limits on the maximum number of participants and also comply with regulations such as hygiene and distance regulations. And, of course, we will take a very critical look at the status of the international participants in their countries of origin," said Ramhorst concerning the enormous rush.

And Kiel is not only the rendezvous of the medal winners of Rio. They will be joined by two other female sailors from the top ten of the Olympic Games and the entire top 13 of the recent World Championship in Australia. More sailing quality has never been seen before in the women's Olympic sailing discipline in Kiel since 2008.

The Kieler Woche titleholder and Olympic as well as World Championship 6th, Josefin Olsson from Sweden, is one of five former Kieler Woche winners, who will use the first chance after the worldwide Corona-Lockdown for a top-class regatta.

More top-class competition is not possible! Among them is the German hope Svenja Weger. The sailor from Berlin has secured for Germany the ticket for the games in Japan. With rank 13 at the world championship she underlined that she has top ten chances. Weger, the 2014 European Champion celebrates her 27th birthday one day before Kieler Woche and can make herself the best birthday present.
