Mathew Belcher

Mathew Belcher headed into his first Olympic Games in 2012 alongside defending Olympic Champion Malcom Page who was looking to defend his 470 title on the waters of Weymouth.

Having combined with Page to win the 2010 and 2011 World Championships the pair were expected to be fighting it out for the medals and they did not disappoint. They scored five victories out of the ten races prior to the medal race and, apart from one ninth, did not finish outside the top five. Their second in the medal race was more than enough to ensure that Belcher made a golden Olympic debut and Page went back to back.
