the trend is not their friend

Granted, it is just a few days into Olympic Sailing, but the good ol’ USA ain’t lookin’ too flash:

470 men – 11th
470 women – 8th
49’er men – Not a single US entry
49’er fx women – 8th
Finn men – 12th
Laser men – 16th
Laser radial – 39th
Nacra mixed – 9th
RSX men – 9th
RSX women – 15th

Now, none of this is to say that the US team won’t rally, put together good races, and conceivably medal. And we hope they do, for sure. Let’s see how it rolls from here…
