Tobin just misses medalling at Weymouth

8:53 am on 12 August 2011

New Zealand windsurfer Jon-Paul Tobin has finished just outside the medals at the London Olympic test event at Weymouth.

Tobin ended up fourth, just one point off Poland who claimed the bronze. The Netherlands won from Great Britain, also by just a point.

New Zealand Laser sailor Andrew Murdoch leads Australian Tom Slingsby by the same slim margin heading into tonight's medal race.

The 49er pair of Peter Burling and Blair Tuke are third with a day remaining before their medal race.

Boardsailor Jon-Paul Tobin is sixth and the women's 470 crew of Jo Aleh and Olivia Powrie are seventh.
