After winning world bronze in 2007, Saskia Clark and Christina Bassadone finished sixth at the Beijing Olympics in the 470 class.
Following Beijing 2008, Bassadone retired from the sport, leaving Clark to trial partnerships with Beijing 2008 Laser Radial representative Penny Clark, and 2008 Olympic Yngling champion teammates Pippa Wilson and Sarah Ayton.
In February 2011, Norwich City FC fan Clark, whose off-the-water partner is Paul Goodison, teamed up with Hannah Mills.
The pair duly won the London 2012 test event and came second at the ISAF World Championships in Perth in December last year before claiming world gold in Barcelona in May.
At the 2012 Olympics in London Clark won silver as part of the the women's 470 team.
