I wonder if they actually awarded the medal? Surely a prerequisite to winning gold is to actually complete the event.

After the Windglider, which like the Windsurfer class until 1979, was sailed without harnesses, no, in my world the Olympics is now a walk in the park with Snowflakes.

No entries at all in 1920 for the windsurfing - must have been well hardcore...
