On Friday, 10 August, 28-year-old Cypriot sailor Pavlos Contidis became the world champion in the Laser class for the second time in a row. It happened in Danish Aarhus. Silver from the Australian Matthew Vern, bronze - from the German Philip Bulle.
Fantastic feeling! It was a difficult race. At first, I lagged behind Matthew, but managed to get together and win the title, "Pavlos said.
Recall that last year in Split (Croatia) Contidis became the world champion for the first time in his career. And in May 2018 in the French city of La Rochelle excelled at the European Championships - again for the first time.
In Aarhus, the first and only Cypriot, who became an Olympic medalist (silver at the Games-2012 in London), won a ticket to the Olympics-2020 in Tokyo.
