Mills and Clark sail into gold. It was in the women’s 470 class at Rio 2016 Olympics. In London 2012 Hannah Mills and Saskia Clark missed out on the top spot after winning silver now they have gone one better.
“I can’t believe it”, Mills told BBC One. “It has actually been the best feeling ever.”
“We have forgotten all about London. We are so proud to come back after it and we’ve worked so hard to get the upgrade to gold.”
Mills and Clark needed only to finish Thursday’s medal race to win gold in the women’s 470 sailing event.
The stunning Olympic success completes a long road for Mills and Clark, who have spent so much time in Rio becoming accustomed to the unique conditions. Their numerous trips to Brazil also included being mugged at knifepoint in Rio in December 2014.
Their gold raised the Great Britain medal number to 21. It contributed to the great mood of Team GB. A fabulous Games all round for the Team GB
