The women's 470 fleet already has its champions — London 2012 silver medalists Hannah Mills and Saskia Clark from Great Britain will win gold as long as they complete the race without penalties. They are 20 points ahead of New Zealand's Jo Aleh and Polly Powrie, who bested the Brits in 2012 for London gold. Even with the Brit's dominance, this will be the tightest race contested today. Aleh and Powrie are not secured any medals, with five other teams within striking distance of silver and one additional team able to win bronze. USA's Annie Hager and Briana Provancha are 1 point behind the kiwis. The American 470 women are the USA's final chance at a medal in Rio, as the men's 470 team and both skiff teams are outside of podium position. The pressure may have been relieved by their teammate, Finn sailor Caleb Paine, bringing home a bronze medal on Tuesday, the first medal for the USA in sailing since 2008. Haeger and Provancha will have to defend their podium position from France's Camille Lecointre and Hélène Defrance who are just 1 point behind them. If they also go on the offensive, they could steal the silver away from the Kiwis. Japan, the Netherlands, Slovenia and Brazil all have a chance at a podium position based on points today as well.
