Percy & Simpson - FLASH QUOTES
Flash Quotes from London 2012 Silver Medallists - Ian Percy and Andrew Simpson
We must be the saddest silver medallists out there today, personally very painful to lose In that way having sailed a good week. Its the nature of sport that we have the final race off the cliffs and froze up any kind of results we this time fell on the wrong side of it.
You can never guarantee it, such wacky conditions, so puffy, you can never guarantee it all, sadly we approached the line and it wasn’t looking that good to be honest and a tiny little puff came in the other side and there’s not much you can do at that point. That’s the nature of sailing on that course there , it’s a bit random and we tried our hardest but it wasn’t to be.
Yeah its pretty tough, it hits you immediately, I think it’s one of those things, in a week we will be proud of our campaign, we’re the best guys out there this week, we’re proud of our efforts obviously very disappointed to not win but I think as a bit of time goes by we will be proud to be silver medallists together again.
Just to compete in the Olympics in Great Britain is a huge honour and we had a great time doing it. The training for it was fantastic and obviously quite frustrating but getting a silver and sailing with one of your best friends, we’ll look back at this in years to come and be really proud, obviously frustrated right now.
