Shaw finishes fifth in final race
A fifth place finish in the final race of the RS:X windsurfing event in Weymouth wasn’t enough for Bryony Shaw to clinch an Olympic medal.
The Tunbridge Wells ace only had an outside chance of a medal having won just one race in the 11-race series. The 29-year-old finished fifth in the final race this afternoon leaving her seventh overall.
Spains’s Marina Alabau won gold with Finland’s Tuuli Petaja in silver and Poland’s Zofia Noceti-Klepacka in bronze.
The Beijing Bronze medallist said: “It’s not to be a medal this time. I’m gutted, but it’s been a great journey.”
