Tokyo 2020 Olympics: Hannah Mills and Eilidh McIntyre claim gold for Great Britain in 470-class

Hannah Mills and Eilidh McIntyre have won the gold medal for Great Britain in the women’s 470-class sailing event at the Tokyo Olympics.

Poland’s Agnieszka Skrzypulec and Jolanta Ogar took silver, with Camille Lecointre and Aloise Retornaz bringing home the silver for France.

Mills, who carried the British flag at the opening ceremony with rower Mohamed Sbihi, won silver in London and gold in Rio with Saskia Clark in the same boat.

Mills and McIntyre had dominated the regatta at Enoshima Harbour, winning two races and only twice finishing outside the top four, and they went into the medal race with a 14-point lead.

That meant they only needed to finish in the top seven to clinch gold and they were never in any danger, crossing the line comfortably in fifth.
