Olympic gold comes to Zadar


Croatia’s Šime Fantela and Igor Marenić today won the men’s 470 olympic gold in Rio. They went into the race with a 10-point lead and were never threatened, with their nearest rivals finishing behind them.


Šime Fantela (born in 1986 in Zadar) is a three-time Olympian in 470 class and has won four medals at the 470 World Championships.  In 2009 in Rungsted, Fantela and fellow Croatian Igor Marenić, claimed gold medal at the 470 World Championships, becoming the first Croatians to win gold medal at the ISAF World Championships.
