Kiteboarding YOG - Dakhla video

Young riders from Europe and Africa earned their chance to compete for the inaugural kiteboarding medals at the upcoming Youth Olympic Games (YOG) in Argentina in a nail-biting finale to the qualification event in Dakhla, Morocco.

Italy’s Sofia Tomasoni’s performances were so dominant in the girls’ European division that she had her slot in the bag even before the last races at the climax of the five-day competition on Dakhla’s renowned kiteboarding lagoon.

Slovenia’s Toni Vodisek in the boy’s European had no such luxury. The extremely quick 17-year-old thought he had blown his chances and allowed bitter rival, France’s Benoit Gomez, to capture the sole spot available after failing to make last elimination round decider.
