Seaton and McGovern qualify for Rio
19 Sep 2014 21:09
Ryan Seaton & Matt McGovern have earned Ireland its third place at the 2016 Olympic Games in Brazil.
The Providence Team IRL sailors have been competing at the ISAF Sailing World Championships in Santander, Spain, since Monday, where 50% of the Olympic places are being allocated.
Although the pair still have one further race tomorrow in the 80-boat 49er class, they have already created enough of a points gap to secure a coveted top-ten nation place.
Upon hearing the news, Ryan Seaton commented: “Getting the qualification for Rio is a big boost for us. It’s one box ticked but we still have a job to finish. We’re here to get a medal so we’ve still got to keep pushing hard."
