Lee Korzits

For the third consecutive time, and fourth in her life, Israeli windsurfer Lee Korzits took first place at the RS-X World Championships in Buzios, Brazil on Tuesday.

Korzits secured her first gold medal in the 2003 World Mistral Championships.

Korzits came in first in the three heats held the previous day, and continued her streak on Tuesday. Another Israeli contender, Maayan Davidovich, placed second, pushing the U.K.’s Bryony Shaw to third place.

In 2011 Korzits won the RS-X World Championships in Australia, and last year she sailed to a gold medal at the championships in Spain.

In the men’s windsurfing event, Nimrod Mashiah was ranked fourth and still has a chance to medal when the competition continues on Wednesday.
