Hannah Mills made history as the most decorated female Olympic sailor of all time as she won gold alongside Eilidh McIntyre in the women’s 470 class in Tokyo
Tokyo 2020: How are Team GB doing compared to Rio and London?
Britain’s Hannah Mills became the most successful female Olympic sailor in history by winning gold with Eilidh McIntyre in the women’s 470 class in Tokyo.
Mills, who carried the British flag at the opening ceremony with rower Mohamed Sbihi, won silver in London and gold in Rio with Saskia Clark in the same boat.
Mills and McIntyre had dominated the regatta at Enoshima, winning two races and only twice finishing outside the top four, and they went into the medal race with a 14-point lead.
That meant they only needed to finish in the top seven to clinch gold and they were never in any danger, crossing the line comfortably in fifth.
