Australian helps expand Olympic participation
The Perth 2011 ISAF Sailing World Championships were held in Western Australia in December. This week five sailors who participated in the Championships' Emerging Nations Programme have qualified to compete at the London 2012 Olympic Games.
The four countries of Colombia, Trinidad and Tobago, Chinese Taipei and Guatemala, all of whom did not compete in sailing at the Beijing Olympics in 2008, will now be represented in London alongside the world's best sailors at the very pinnacle of the sport.
This Emerging Nationals program, developed by Perth 2011 is going to become a permanent part of future World Sailing Championships.
