We’ve heard the rumors for a long time now, but today we confirmed that the ink is dry on an agreement to bring the Star back to the Olympics for the 2016 games. No other class will be displaced; it’s all thanks to a strange IOC quirk that allows the host country to add an event of their choosing to the games. We’re told that Rio will need to pay for the costs of running the Star racing; a small price to pay for a very likely Robert Scheidt/Bruno Prada medal.
