TOM Squires has an outside shot at a medal going into his final day of racing at the Tokyo Olympics.

The windsurfer, from Kingston Bagpuize, reached Saturday's decider after finishes of second, sixth and tenth in the last events of the regular competition.

Squires is sixth overall heading into the medal race, which starts at roughly 7.30am BST, needing to make up a 14-point gap to Italy's Mattia Camboni in third.

The 27-year-old has been satisfied with his displays this week, but was kicking himself after the last of the 12 races.

He said: “The launch race had a lot riding on it, and I had a bit of an average one, so we’ll see how points are when we’re going into the medal race.

“I’ve put up a fight this week it’s been good racing and we’ve had a good wind, and I’ve really loved the racing.

“I had two good races and then the wind just started to drop on the last one.

"I had a really rubbish start and then I had to find bad lanes out as I was already at the back at that point, so I think I was just trying to take as many places as I could.

“It’s not the end yet and I’m looking forward to having a good medal race hopefully.”

On the rowing lake, Oxford Brookes University's Quentin Antognelli finished second in his men's single sculls semi-final.

The Monegasque athlete progresses to tomorrow's 'C' Final, although there are no medals up for grabs.
