British sailor Giles Scott has captured gold in men’s one person dinghy (heavyweight) Finn class at Enoshima Yacht Harbour today 3 August.

After a rocky start that saw him restart the race, Scott managed to catch up with the rest of the fleet to bring him again in contention to win his second medal in the Finn event after his Rio 2016 victory.

Scott crossed the line in fourth place but amassed enough points in the last leg to take him back to leader position to win gold.

Hungary’s Zsombor Berecz crossed the finish line first in the medal race but took silver with a total score of 2 points behind Scott’s 8. It’s Berecz’s first Olympic medal of his career.

Third place went to Spain’s Joan Cardona Mendez.

Zsombor Berecz began sailing at age 12 at Velence Water Sports School in Hungary. His family were interested in sailing and he enjoyed it as soon as he tried it. “My destiny was finally decided. From then on, I have dedicated my entire life to sailing.”

After competing at the 2008 and 2012 Olympic Games in the Laser class and failing to finish in the top 20 at either competition, he decided to switch to the Finn class. At the 2016 Games in Rio de Janeiro he finished 12th sailing in his new class.

“This class suits me better. Competing in the Laser, I would be out of energy by the end of the race because my weight was at the 82 or 83 kilogramme mark. Now I’m heavier which suits me, and I have a better chance of finishing higher at the Olympic Games.”

He became the first Hungarian sailor to be crowned world champion in the Finn class when he won gold at the 2018 World Championships in Aarhus, Denmark and now he has captured silver medal in men’s one person dinghy (heavyweight) Finn class at Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games.
