HYDERABAD: Rajesh Choudhary regained his position at the top in the Standard category of the Laser Nationals at the Hussain Sagar, clinching both the races sailed on Thursday in convincing fashion.
The day’s concluding race was a case in point for the superior skills of the two-time Asian Games bronze medallist, overlooked for the Arjuna Award in this year’s honours list as well.
Gajender Singh, but for conceding the lead in the second beat, held sway for most of the way in the Radial class.
