Olympics: Ainslie's rival Jonas Hogh-Christensen happy with silver medal
Jonas-Hogh Christensen said he was 'happy' with silver medal in the finn class after a close battle with Falmouth sailor Ben Ainslie at London 2012.
The Dane led for the whole series and was only overtaken in the overall standings by Ainslie in the final race.
However, despite that Høgh-Christensen was upbeat about his performance in the final race.
"I did what I wanted to do but just didn't go my way. I got the start I wanted and got in the perfect position and squeezed him off the to the right. I totally followed my plan.”
“Unfortunately the right paid for the first time this week. Ben put a cover on me then, probably too tight. At one point PJ had the gold.”
“I am pretty happy with silver. I have lost by the smallest margin possible. Of course that's good fun and great for the sport. But its just a shame as I did what I wanted to do. Looking back at the week there’s a couple of races where you can gain same pionts, like the capsize, of course. I had the gold in for hands and just couldn’t materialise it.”
“I'’ts a great achievement to win a medal. I think we’ve prepared really well for this Olympics and we have a pretty good game plan and followed it all week. And its seemed to work out.”
