Sail-World.com : We did not plan for this!!
We did not plan for this!!

'Tom Slingsby talks to schoolchildren at Gosford Sailing Club'    Sail-World.com /AUS ©    Click Here to view large photo
On Saturday, the Sail-World Team was present at the Civic Reception at Gosford Sailing Club for Olympic Laser Gold Medallist Tom Slingsby.

Having first interviewed Tom when he was a shy school boy long ago at the same location and having been on the start line and finish line of the Medal Race in Weymouth, it was wonderful to join in with the locals and to see him talking to the school children on Saturday.

Tom is a great young Australian and great ambassador for our sport.

There was quite a media crush and as Craig Haydon from Yachting Australia stood videoing the occasion beside me, he said ‘we planned what we would do if we won the three Gold Medals we thought we could.

' We just did not plan for this ... a situation where we won more Gold Medals than any other Olympic sport.’

It’s a wonderful problem to have… all our medallists have been in high media demand and this can only be good for our sport.

Olivia Price, Nina Curtis and Lucinda Whitty (AUS) who won the Silver Medal today, 11.08.12, in the Medal Race Women’s Match Racing (Elliott 6M) event in The London 2012 Olympic Sailing Competition.

The London 2012 Olympic Sailing Competition runs from 29 July to 12 August and brings together 380 of the world’s best sailors to race on Weymouth Bay.
