    A little disappointing in a way, though - silver is great, obviously, but they've been ahead of the field since the very first race, and just got pushed out in the final few moments. I think they'll be gutted, to start with at least

    Can't help feeling if they hadn't spent so much time messing about with the Brazilians they could have taken that

    Exactly. I can't say I really understand some of the tactics in sailing, but it seems a bit shortsighted to be trying to stick to the Brazilian boat, when the Swedish boat was so far ahead of the two of them. I'm sure in the commentary they said Sweden had been in silver medal position coming into this race, so would it not have made more sense to concentrate on them?

    Maybe I'm missing something...

    Shame, but still a silver medal so bravo to them.
    Ben Anslie up next he should be set for another gold.

    Neck & neck between Ben Ainslie & Jonas Hogh-Christiansen in the Finn medal race - they're currently 7th & 8th respectively...but if it stays that way it will be gold for Ben.
