I think Stevie and Ben were the best choice- they had won a world chamionship and some test events... (Their blog is an interesting read)

Were Draper and Hiscocks even still sailing together during selection?

Draper and Hiscocks were actually winners of the bronze medal in Athens. Silver was Barker and Hiscocks in Sydney.

i would say that we had outstanding teams in the 49er as in 2006 Draper and Hiscocks won the worlds and pre-olympics then in 2007 won hyeres. Selection is always difficult and is not always right like i did not agree with some of the decisions for 2008 but luckily i am not on the selection commitee. I think that the team did outstanding in such difficult conditions and after chatting to them yesterday it sounded really hard for a couple of teams.
