Lena Erdil Dominates Women’s Fleet at the IFCA Slalom Worlds
The IFCA Slalom World Championships are currently running at the Volvo Surf Cup on Sylt. Almost 90 competitors from 17 different nations travelled to Germany’s most famous island for the most important slalom regatta of the year. Among them is also a great fleet of 10 women.
On the first day it was possible to run two races for the women. Lena Erdil (TUR-33) from Turkey proved why she is known as one of the best ladies in the discipline slalom. She dominated both races straight from the start and secured bullets. With this success Erdil is leading the women’s fleet with the ideal score of 1,4 points.
Maria Andres (ESP-2) from Spain is on Lena Erdil’s heels. She achieved two second places that sum up to 4,0 points, ensuring her place two in the event ranking at the end of day one.
Esther de Geus (NED-16) from the Netherlands and Anissa Morath (DEN-85) from Denmark were fighting head to head for the third place. After two days the two women are tied with 8,0 points. But because of her third place in race one Esther de Geus is able to sneak in front to conquer place three. Marine Hunter (FRA-181) from France completes the Top-5 in the women’s fleet.
