Marit Bouwmeester is again a medal favorite for this Games. The Netherlands holds the most medals in women's sailing, but has yet to win gold. Bouwmeester will be looking to improve upon her silver from London, but in such a strong fleet it'll have to be quite a performance. Evi Van Acker, who said in a press conference on Saturday that she is "ready to rumble," has been a class favorite since before London (where she took home bronze) and has continued to close the gap on Bouwmeester and now Xu. Not far behind is Belgium's Anne-Marie Rindom, Britian's Alison Young, USA's Paige Railey and at least a half dozen others who have a real shot in this class. Day one should provide a bit of a look at who can best adjust to the tricky Escola racecourse, but Rio will require consistency far beyond day one.
