    Paul Snow-Hansen and Dan Wilcox will head home with a gold medal intact

    Paul Snow-Hansen and Dan Wilcox will head home with a gold medal intact


    The New Zealand men's 470 sailors have won the European championships in Portugal.

    The pair went into the top-10 medal race in second, eight points behind a French duo, needing to finish at least four boats ahead of them.

    They managed to do so in the double points showdown, with Snow-Hansen and Willcox fourth and the French ninth.

    Snow-Hansen says it's a great confidence boost ahead of the Tokyo Olympics.
