Hungarian wins rare sailing gold

Zsombor Berecz won the gold medal in the Finn boat class of the Sailing World Championships in the waters off Aarhus, Denmark on Thursday, wining a rare sailing medal for Hungary.

It enhances the value of his success that the event is also in the Olympic programme.

The 32-year-old placed fifth at the Balatonfüred world championships last year. He took part in the past three Olympic games, without winning a medal.
