Sussex sailor picked for London Olympics
11:07am Wednesday 9th May 2012 in Sport
Eastbourne-born sailor Stevie Morrison has been selected to represent Great Britain at the London Olympics.
Morrison, who is now based at Exmouth, will compete with Southampton's Ben Rhodes in the 49er class.
Alison Young, from Wolverhampton, will represent Team GB in the Laser Radial event.
The addition of these three athletes completes the selection of a full complement of 16 sailors to compete across all ten events on the Olympic sailing programme at Weymouth and Portland this summer.
Morrison and Rhodes have been sailing together since 2001 and have both World and European titles to their names.
They will be competing at their second Games, having made their Olympic debut in Beijing four years ago.
Stephen Park, RYA Olympic manager and sailing team leader, said: ''As we go into the Games, I can honestly say hand on heart that we've got people who've got potential to medal in every single event. We've never had that before.
'That doesn't mean to say that we'll medal in every event - far from it - but in terms of preparing a good team, the sailors have done an incredible job to date.
''Having teams selected at this stage provides us with an opportunity for them to pull together, to bond as a group and really allows that to add an extra dimension to their preparation in the last weeks up until the Games.''
