Team McNay-Biehl Wins US Men's Sailing 470 Olympic Trials
October 17, 2007 (PRLEAP.COM) Sports NewsLong Beach, California – For Stuart McNay and Graham Biehl, sailing is more than a sport, it's a passion. And for the past three years, they've worked towards exhibiting their passion at the greatest of world stages: the 2008 Summer Olympics in Beijing, China. Their years of hard work culminated this weekend, with a commanding 6-1 finish in the 470 Class Men's US Sailing Olympics Trial, putting them beyond the reach of any competitors and assuring a place for them to compete in next year's Olympics.
The story of McNay and Biehl is marked by hard work, dedication, and camaraderie. Both are dedicated 470 sailors, with numerous distinctions from youth, collegiate, Olympic and general sailing events. Recognizing each other's talents, they joined as teammates at the end of 2004 and have been training for the Olympics since then.
After seeing all of their hard work pay off, Biehl admitted that the win has "not quite" sunk in. The two were promptly congratulated by class advisor Kevin Burnham, himself a winner of the 2004 Olympic Gold Medal in Men's 470 Class Sailing. "We've got a lot of big shoes to fill," Biehl said.
When they're not rigorously training and sailing at regattas, McNay and Biehl write of their grand Olympic journey at www.teammb.org. This website was designed by Hall Web Services of Scarborough, Maine, who proudly supports these athletes by donating web hosting, site maintenance and other technical services. Having worked hard for years at the opportunity, McNay and Biehl look forward to the opportunity to representing America as they compete for the Gold in Beijing this coming summer.
