Prince Charles lends support to Team GB sailors
MANILA, Philippines – Prince Charles met members of Team GB Olympic sailing squad where Olympic sailing and windsurfing events will be held.
The prince was shown around the venue by Team GB sailor Ben Ainslie, who is a three-time Olympic gold medalist in the sport.
Sailing Team GB, which had great success at the Beijing Games in 2008 where they won four golds, a silver and a bronze, have been in training alongside their foreign competitors in the hopes of bringing in even more medals this year.
Fourth place on the overall medal table remains the target for the whole Team GB after their Beijing success, with China, Russia and the US medal totals deemed out of reach. -- Mornings @ ANC, June 27, 2012
