Estepona sailor Ana Moncada staked her claim for a place on the Spanish Olympic team by securing two medals at the Spanish International Laser Class Association-6 Cup in Mallorca last weekend.

Moncada took gold in the under-21 section and also earned a bronze medal in the senior category. Cristina Pujol, one of Moncada's rivals to represent Spain in the Laser Radial event in Tokyo, won gold.

Next up is the regatta in Vilamoura (Portugal) from 17 to 24 April - earmarked as the most important event in determining who goes to the Olympics. Moncada said: "I'm happy with my last performance and know how I can improve for Vilamoura."
