Alison Young GBR - 2016 Women's Laser Radial World Champion

Congratulations to Alison Young of the British Sailing Team on winning the 2016 Women's Laser Radial World Championship in Mexico this week agains some tough competition.

Going into the final race, Paige Railey of the USA was leading by four points. Alison won the race and Paige finished sixth giving Alison the gold medal by one point!

Full results are here.

I think we will have to have a British patriotic song to celebrate the occasion. So turn up the volume, open all the windows, and treat your neigbours to Rule Britannia from the Last Night of the Proms in 2009. What could be more British than this?

PS I don't think that mezzo-soprano dressed up as Lord Nelson is Alison Young.

This is Alison Young.
