Our fellow member Joan Herp is about to begin to dispute the Rio Games in the 470 class with Jordi Xammar.
Both they come after winning a hotly contested selection of the representative of Spain. Its upward trajectory (June World Champions in 2013 and 2014, European Champions in June 2014, 7th in the World Absolute 2014 and 4th in 2015) enters new phase: the hunt for an Olympic medal.
They will compete from Wednesday on 10 and if all goes well, dispute the Medal Race on Wednesday, 17. Hopefully we posed seeing them in the replay of the final race, which is scheduled at 13 am local, 18 hours in Barcelona.
