Great Britain's Nick Dempsey Claims windsurfing RS-X Silver
Great Britain's Nick Dempsey has won windsurfing silver in the men's RS-X class after finishing third in the medal race in Weymouth.
The bronze medalist from Athens went into the final leg of the RS-X event having to hold on to the silver medal position, following a fast start earlier in the week by eventual winner Dorian van Russelberge from Netherlands.
Having finished second in the 10th race to cement his runners-up spot, the 31 year old came third in the medal race, to finish ahead of Przemyslaw Miarczynski, and recover from the disappointment of fourth place in Beijing.
It's been a pretty difficult four years but I always believed that I could come here and do well and I'm just massively relieved I think more than anything," Dempsey said.
