Israeli surfer Shahar Tzuberi dropped to the third place in the RS:X Men windsurfing competition Sunday at the 2008 Beijing Olympics after coming in sixth in the sixth sail and 19th in the seventh sail. Tzuberi has four more sailings left.
Tzuberi filed an appeal against the seventh sail's results, claiming that Greece's Nikolaos Kaklamanakis collided with him, but the appeal was denied.
Maayan Davidovitz came in 14th in her sixth sail in the RS:X Women Windsurfing competition, and is now ranked 13th overall.
In other sports, gymnast Alexander Shatilov, 21, came in eighth and last in the men's all-around final with a score of 14.125. Shatilov made history as the first Israeli to reach an Olympic final in this category.
