Cheating for the Holland axis

The team was unable to improve that position during the fifth and second kilometer races from the start of the boat. Gold went to New Zealand, silver to Germany, and bronze to Great Britain.
The disappointment of the sailors of the Holland axis was overwhelming.

This is very disappointing, “said Robert Logan, batting first.
Orange was removed from the Olympics. European champion and vice-world champion Yokohama lost 2-2 in a penalty shootout against the United States, while the chances of winning the world championship were assured. The beautiful era of Sarina Wickman, who becomes England national coach after four successful years with Orange, has come to a sad end.
League Martens already had the final chance to shoot the Orange for the semi-final against Canada in the 80th minute, but his weak penalty was blocked by US goalkeeper Alyssa Neyre. In the penalty series, star Vivian Maidema and Anik Nuen did not score from eleven meters.
