Adam Minoprio climbs to 5th place in match racing rankings
Hello from BlackMatch Racing,
The recent release of the ISAF World Match Racing rankings has seen Adam Minoprio and the BlackMatch crew elevated into a career high 5th place World Ranking, one place behind Austrailian and fellow Line 7 sponsored Torvar Mirsky. The ISAF World Rankings count results over the past 2 years and as last year was our first year on the tour this is an extraordinary effort, well beyond what we anticipated. Our recent climb through the rankings was not only due to our victory in Marseille, but also helped by the fact that we have made the the last 3 World Tour finals in a row, it's this kind of form that we are hoping to carry into our upcoming events. Next week we are back competing, travelling to Germany for the second event on the World Tour, this is immediately followed by the Korea Match Cup Tour event, where we finished third last year.
