Israel on Saturday dominated the mixed-gender category at the 470 World Championships, with Gil Cohen and Noam Homri winning the gold medal at the sailing tournament in Portugal.
Also winning a medal were fellow Israelis Tal Sade and Noa Lasry, who took silver.
Nitai Hasson and Tamar Saar finished seventh in the category.
“This is a big day for Israeli sailing,” Shai Buber, head of the Israel Sailing Association, was quoted saying by the Walla news site. “We’re already waiting to recreate the accomplishment at the world championships next year.”
The race in the mixed-gender field was to qualify for the 2024 Olympics in Paris in the 470 dingy class and not the upcoming games in Tokyo.
