It's been a long time since we've talked about sailing on the show and we're excited to return to it today as we speak with two-time Australian Olympian and two-time Olympic medallist William Ryan about his amazing career and his amazing Olympic experiences! We find out from Will just how young he was when he got his first taste of sailing and why that was a turning point for him going towards a stellar Olympic career. We also find out which other sports he could've been successful in for Australia and how a chance conversation with a legendary coach put him on a path for Olympic glory. Added to this we find out how he was able to use the disappointment of winning silver in Rio to help him towards gold in Tokyo, just why sailing is an incredibly exciting sport and should be treated more like one and why he is so obsessed with a certain movie from the 1980s.
