Jo Aleh and Olivia Powrie “Team Jolly” Win Gold in London 2012
Aleh and Powrie picked up the women’s 470 gold medal with a brilliant final-day performance that left their closest rivals, Great Britain, floundering. They began the day level on points with the world champion Great Britain team and the final race, for double points, became a match-racing shootout.
It was really all over by the first mark. The British tacked away from New Zealand and fell behind quickly.
