M7 dominates 2012 Olympics 470 event with 5 medals

With 38 of the 47 competing teams choosing Super Spars M7 470 mast, expectation of medals was very high and the result was five medals comprising two gold one silver and two bronze.

Competition in both men's and ladies events was very tight with the result going to the wire in the final medal races.

In the men's event the Australian Team of Mathew Belcher and Malcolm Page won the battle for Gold from Team GB and the Argentinian Team won bronze.

In the women's event New Zealand's Olivia Powrie and Jo Aleh won a similarly tight fight for Gold narrowly beating Team GB in the medal race, with the Dutch ladies not far behind in third place.
