In the Men's 470, the gold and silver are all but decided with three races remaining. Mathew Belcher and Malcolm Page of Australia and Luke Patience and Stu Bithell of Great Britain have built a huge lead over the rest of the fleet, they 30 and 29 points ahead of third, respectively. And neither has finished worse than ninth in any single race. The match racing will between these two will start today, especially if both have good first races. Patience and Bithell currently have the better throwout, a sixth to Belcher and Page's ninth. If that holds into Race 10, look for the British team to do what they can to force Belcher and Page into a bad race. The three points they will pick up should both teams have a very poor result could make a huge different in the medal race. The bronze medal is wide open, with teams from Italy, Argentina, New Zealand, France, Portugal, Austria, and Croatia still alive. The teams from Sweden and Israel could also entry the fray if they have a great day. The American team of Stu McNay and Graham Biehl are currently 17th, with a realistic chance of moving up three or four spots with a great day.
