Hannah is focused on a place in the sailing team for London 2012, but as Ollie says, 'She doesn't need much advice from me about the technical side of things - she knows more than me now!'

They first met in the Optimist class at Llanishen Sailing Centre when Hannah was 8 years old: 'Ollie was a great mentor and someone to look up to. He always made coaching fun and enjoyable, which was the main thing. He could also be a bit hard if he wanted to!'
