Biography

Paul Goodison won his first Olympic title at the second time of asking at Beijing 2008.

Goodison went on to hold the European, Olympic and world titles in 2009, having won the latter for the first time in his career in August of that year in Halifax, Canada.

In 2009, Sheffield United FC fan Goodison was awarded an MBE after winning Olympic gold the previous year.

Goodison embarked on an unbeaten run after the Beijing Olympics, which was finally brought to a end at the 2009 Sail for Gold Regatta at the London 2012 venue in Weymouth.

Goodison prevailed in a battle for the sole British London 2012 spot with Nick Thompson, who won world silver in December last year in Perth.

Goodison’s 2009 European title was his fifth in a row while victory at Beijing 2008 was his first Olympic medal, having finished fourth at Athens 2004, also in the Laser class.

Based in Weymouth but born in Rotherham, Goodison’s partner is fellow British Olympian Saskia Clark.
