Pilar Lamadrid, sixth in the iQFOiL European Championship

The good sensations have not translated into a medal for Pilar Lamadrid at the iQFOiL European Championship. The Andalusian stayed in the quarterfinals of the championship played in Greece and finished in the sixth position of the general classification. Lamadrid qualified as fourth in the final phase, a result that earned them participation in the Medal Series, butn the first regatta this Sunday, the quarterfinals, she finished third, a result that translated into the sixth final position.

This last day of the European Championship was complicated by a wind of more than 25 knots, with points reaching 40. This forced us to delay the start of the day by more than three hours and, finally, after 2:30 p.m. The women’s fleet came out to play the quarterfinals, in which Pilar Lamadrid started as one of the favorites to get a pass to the semifinal. The problem was that she ran into the strong wind and its instability, which took its toll on her.

Pilar Lamadrid got off to a good start, although in the middle of the test she lost a lot of ground with two of her opponents and that’s when all the options of reaching the semifinal were gone because In these quarterfinals, only the first two classified in the regatta were able to advance to the next round, so Lamadrid’s third place was not enough to advance in the Medal Series. Even so, the final sixth place is positive for the Andalusian, who arrived at this European Championship with lower back discomfort, because it shows that she is on the right track towards the Paris 2024 Olympic Games. The gold medal went to the Norwegian Mina Mobekk, the silver for the Israeli Sharon Kantor and the bronze for the British Emma Wilson.
