"Tom Slingsby" of Australia won gold in Men's Laser Sailing

Tom Slingsby won just Australia's second gold medal of the Olympics on Monday and hoped his success would inspire his country's flagging campaign.

In doing so the 27-year-old Gosford boy erased his demons from Beijing where he also entered the Olympics as a raging favourite, only to finish in a disappointing 22nd place.

This time it went to script as he made the blue water of Weymouth his own, totally dominating the event with four wins and three seconds from the ten fleet races.

“The Olympics is a dream,” Slingsby said. “It is the pinnacle of the sport and right now I am the happiest man on the planet. This is the best feeling in the world. I worked for 12 years to get to here and I put everything I had into it. Last time I put in so much hard work and came away with nothing, and this time I put in more work and look at me now.
