Anne-Marie Rindom was a big smile as she raced her laser radially across the finish line at the Olympics in Tokyo. Good enough only in a seventh place in the so-called medal race – the decisive race for gold, silver and bronze – but that position was just accurate enough for the Dane to raise his arms and call himself Olympic champion.
“I am completely up to speed. This is too wild. That it happens. After a fifth day where everything goes wrong that I like keept my cool all the way and kept fighting, ”says the 30-year-old gold winner, who tells that her bailer – the mechanism that can continuously empty the boat of water, was suddenly filled with seagrass, while the race itself also crumbled for her.
The fifth day mentioned was on Friday, when Rindom forged a gigantic lead of 21 points – and from looking like a gold winner even before the medal race, she suddenly had to work with her head so as not to fall into the same black hole that she smoked in at the Olympics in Rio de Janeiro, where she long lay for gold, but ended up with bronze.
