Israeli windsurfer Shahar Zubari cruised to a gold medal in men’s RS:X at the Sailing World Cup in Qingdao, China, Saturday.

Maayan Davidovich finished with Bronze in the RS:X women’s division after a tough last race.

Zubari came into the race 18 points ahead, enough to easily glide to the win.

“It’s not been an easy week but I’m happy to come away with the title,” he said, according to the International Sailing federation.

In 2008, Zubari took home the Bronze Medal at Qingdao during the Beijing Olympics.

Davidovich came into the medal race sitting in second place, but finished ninth in the leg, dropping her to the bronze medal.

New Zealand’s Jo Aleh, the daughter of an Israeli, won the gold with Polly Powrie in the Women’s division of the two-person 470 race.
