Philipp Buhl prevailed in twelve spectacular races off the Australian coast in an outstanding field of 124 boats from 44 nations. This means that the 30-year-old has reached the high point of his professional career so far in the Olympic year. Philipp Buhl had previously won two bronze and one silver medal at World Sailing Championships.

After the World Championship gold, Allgeier will continue to accompany Philipp Buhl on his mission to win a medal at the Olympic Games in Tokyo this summer.
