Olympian Emma Wilson; sails her own race!

The Olympic Games symbolises unity and exuberance of the human spirit. Swifter, Higher, Stronger! Olympian and The Official Test Centre Team Rider Emma Wilson shows us the possibilities of the human spirit when we follow our dreams. As Emma smashes it at the iQFoil Worlds this week and is dominating the fleet, I was lucky enough to catch up with her before the Worlds and speak about her training and the build up to her second Olympic Games. Always with gratitude Olympian Emma Wilson; sails her own race! With astonishing talent and always with a smile! We watch in awe as her talent trumps the competition and all her hours on the water training, off the water training, the sacrifices, the dedication, the mental focus and the physical dedication is just so inspirational!
