Sarah Blanck added to sailing team



By Yachting Australia / Australian Olympic Committee

Sarah Blanck was added to the 2008 Australian Olympic Team over the weekend to keep her dream of an Olympic medal alive.

The Laser Radial sailor was not able to be named by the Australian Olympic Committee with the rest of the sailing team on Thursday as an appeal was still pending.

Sarah switched to the Laser Radial class in 2005 after being our highest placed Olympian in Athens 2004 with a 4th in the Europe class, a class in which she was World Champion in 2002.

In 2007 she has won the Laser Radial division at the Sydney International Regatta, placed 2nd at the Australian Laser Championship and placed 3rd at Kiel Week. Sarah is the current Australian Female Sailor of the Year and the Australian Sailing Team co-captain with Malcolm Page.

The Australian Olympic sailing team boasts five current world champions with officials confident of bringing home at least four medals.

470 women's crew Elise Rechichi and Tessa Parkinson are also considered a medal prospect.

The rest of the Australian sailing squad includes RS:X sailboarder Jessica Crisp, Yngling crew Nicky Bethwaite, Karyn Gojnich and Angela Farrell.
