Israeli Windsurfer Survives Competition Accident


Leading Israeli windsurfer Shai Tzuberi escaped serious injury, if not death, Thursday, while taking part in the second heat of the RSX European Championships in Turkey. A British competitor who was supposed to give him the right of way crashed into Tzuberi's board, causing it to burst apart.

Tzuberi suffered an injury to his hand but was able to borrow an Italian friend's board for the third heat, where he finished in 33rd place, knocking him out of the competition. He plans to file an appeal.
