This is a proud day, as I am a sailor as you all know. Where I sail at Gosford Sailing Club Tom has got the first individual GOLD medal for Australia. Very Exciting. I was so excited I felt his joy, its worth every second of suspense.
I think we got so wrapped up this year in the 2012 Olympics London being our swimmers will bring home all that gold. Shame they put so much into telling people they would do it and there was our Tom took it as it came, well deserved a credit to us all. The race was just amazing to watch. Good luck also to our other sailors.
We are proud of you Tom Slingsby!
