Shaw celebrates another win as she takes Gold at the ISAF World Cup in Hyeres, a day ahead of her 30th birthday.
Bryony Shaw got the day off to winning ways for the Brits, and secured an early birthday present for herself in the RS:X women’s windsurfing event, finishing second in the first of her two medal races, before closing out the gold in style with a win in the final race.
“I’m really happy!” said Shaw afterwards, ahead of her 30th birthday tomorrow. “I didn’t have the best of days yesterday on the last day of finals series, so was pretty fired up coming in to today. Two of my main rivals were over the line in the first race, so that was a big opportunity for me.
“I sailed really well, got good starts, and made some good decisions so it’s great that it all came together today when it mattered,” she commented
“I’ve had a great start to the year with silver at the World Championships and silver in Palma. I really wanted to keep that momentum going this week and come away with gold, so I’m really happy, and especially to have performed well across the range of conditions this week.”
