Scorpion described as a launch? Love the press and how technical they get.

Can you imagine the grief if she'd fallen out.......not ideal impression for the sponsors either.... ribnobbers...

Eh? Even ignoring - Chris Hoy (6 golds), Redgrave (5 golds) was the previous 'best british olympian'

Only if you count medals as a measure of success.

Cyclists & rowers can gain multiple medals per year. Sailors cant compete in multiple events.

1. Redgrave won his 5 golds in 5 different Olympics.
2. I refer you to the ", having" in the Daily Mail article I quoted - the connection is made by the "journalist" not by me.
