Israeli world champion in Mistral 7.4
Shiri Ron from Eilat, won the world championship in youth category Mistral 7.4,
The windsurfing championship was held in Thailand end of December 2001.
20 participants from different countries took part. Curious enough her main rival
was another Israeli girl Roni Shaked, who took the second place.
The determination, hard training, sportive attitude and friendship between Shiri
and Rony played a great part in the achievement
A large credit must be granted to the professional coach Rony Meir, who serves
also as main coach for the Israeli team of Mistral windsurfers.
