Sailing Qualification for Summer Olympic Games 2016

Recommended Posts

BTW this tournament was selective for our RSX women and Maria Celia Tejerina won the place. So now all our team representatives are confirmed.

Never mine. I already checked the sources. Btw, why did the Argentines chose Bautista Saubidet in men's windsurfing, instead of Mariano Reutemann?

The selection in men's rsx was through accumulation of points in three specific tournaments (the last one was world cup Miami I think) and Saubidet simply had better results and was selected. For other categories like nacra or 49er there wasn't any selection because we have one boat that is far better in level than the others, so there is no point. In those categories, the people who got the quota will represent Argentina automatically.

BTW Bautista shouldn't be confused with his younger brother Francisco, who won gold in Nanjing and a bunch of windsurf youth world ch. medals.

Interesting to note that Joao Rodrigues from Portugal has been selected for his 7th Olympics in RS:X. Quite an achievement, especially since the windsurfer is quite a physical class. He participated all the way back in Barcelona in '92.

I forgot to ask this the other day: has it happened before at the olympics that father and son compete in the same olympics? because in our team there is Santiago Lange (Nacra) and his two sons Yago and Klaus (49er). I would think only in shooting, equestrian or sailing this is possible.

The one that I could find is Rita de Luna and Silvia de Luna (her daughter) from Guatemala that competed in eventing in 1976.

 

I guess it's very likely that it also happened in one of the very early Olympics.


Here it is, father and son won team gold in 1912 in shooting https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Shooting_at_the_1912_Summer_Olympics_%E2%80%93_Men's_100_metre_team_running_deer,_single_shots

He's competed in three different boat classes, a very impressive athlete.
