Congratulations to Seán Waddilove - He has qualified for the 2024 Olympics !

Tokyo veterans Robert Dickson and Sean Waddilove booked their place for the Paris Olympics following the conclusion of the Irish selection trials at La Grande Motte on Sunday.

After the morning saw the final fleet race cancelled due to light winds, the Dublin crew placed eighth overall and qualified for the medal race final.

However, the result saw them beat Corks Séafra Guilfoyle and Johnny Durcan who ended the European championship for their 49er class in 12th place, their best result to date.

While the result lines Dickson and Waddilove up nicely for their second Olympic appearance, capitalising on their result from last Novembers European Championship when they won a nation place in the mens skiff event for Paris, that the selection trials went down to potentially the final race of the third and final event is indicative of the form of both crews.
