Israeli sailors Shahar Tibi and Noya Bar Am got off to a good start to their event in the women’s Two Person Dinghy 470 in the Tokyo 2020 Olympics on Sunday morning, but failed to keep up the momentum, remaining in 8th place overall after taking 4th place in race 7 and 11th place in race 8. 
Bar Am and Tibi started off race 7 well, positioning themselves in third place before being overtaken near the fourth buoy, where they stayed until the race’s end.

Race 8 was more challenging for the Israeli duo, which started in eighth place, dropping down to 9th place around the 3rd buoy, 11th place in the next buoy, and 13th place at the 5th buoy. 
Towards the end of race 8, the two were able to claw their way back to overtake the duos from Australia and Greece to finish 11th.
The two now hold 55 points, only 10 points behind the fourth place Switzerland, but far behind the three leaders from Poland, Britain and France.
On Monday, the two will participate in the final two races before the medal race, though the major lead held by the top 3 sailing teams make it unlikely that Team Israel will win a medal this time around.
