RIO DE JANEIRO: British sailors Hannah Mills and Saskia Clark polished off a gold medal-winning performance in the women’s 470 two-person dinghy on Thursday in a medal race postponed for lack of wind from Wednesday.

Skipper Mills and crew Clark had only to finish the double-points finale after building a 20-point lead after 10 prior races.

New Zealand’s Jo Aleh and Polly Powrie earned silver and France’s Helene Defrance and Camille Lecointre grabbed bronze after the United States made a late mistake to tumble from podium position to seventh overall. AFP
