Norfolk Windsurfer Gets Olympic Silver
The windsurfer from Mulbarton in Norfolk came in second.
Windsurfer Nick Dempsey has won Great Britain’s third sailing medal of London 2012 after clinching RS:X silver at Weymouth and Portland today (Tuesday 7 August).
The medal is Dempsey’s second piece of Olympic windsurfing silverware, having won bronze at Athens 2004.
Dempsey went into today’s double points medal race, sitting second overall, 11 points clear of Toni Wilhelm (GER) in bronze medal position and 17 points ahead of Przemyslaw Miarczynski (POL) who occupied fourth spot.
Speaking immediately after the race, Dempsey said: “It’s been a pretty difficult four years but I always believed I could come here and do well. I’m just massively relieved more than anything.
“It’s been really tough. The Dutch guy had such a good start [to the regatta] and it was about coming to terms with that very quickly I was only going to be racing for second. I was desperate, desperate [to win silver]. Third was going to be a disaster, and fourth I don’t know what I’d have done.
“I’m just glad I could do it for all the people who have helped me. Without doubt to have all my family and friends here to do in front of the crowd couldn’t be better. This is a moment for reflection but I’m pretty sure this is not the end of the road.”
Dempsey medal’s followed Ben Ainslie’s Finn gold and Iain Percy / Andrew Simpson’s Star silver on Sunday.
