Carlo Allais earned the gold medal and Clementine Lucine took home silver at the 2013 Mediterranean Games, held last weekend in Mersin, Turkey.
As the top seed heading into the finals, Carlo knew he only needed 4 buoys at 35-off in the rough conditions to take gold for Italy, doing just that to secure the win. France’s Dailland Thibaut fishished second with 3-1/2 buoys at 35-feet off and Italy’s Luzzeri Matteo was third with 1-1/2 buoys at 35-feet off.
The Women faced better conditions as Clementine scored 2-1/2 buoys at 38-feet off to finish second, a buoy-and-a-half behind her French teammate Manon Costard. Italy’s Beatrice Ianni finished third.
Eight countries (Croatia, Cyprus, France, Greece, Italy, Lebanon, Spain and Turkey) competed in the slalom event, which was part of the 4,000-athlete, 24-country, 32-sport games. For complete results, click here.
