BIOGRAPHY

Nick Thompson first burst onto scene as an 18-year-old, taking Laser gold at the 2004 ISAF Youth Sailing World Championships in Gdynia, Poland. 

Since then, the Lymington sailor has been a regular on the podium at senior level, with highlights including a bronze medal at the 2009 Laser World Championships and silver two years later at the ISAF Sailing World Championships in Perth.

Thompson just missed out on London 2012 selection as Beijing 2008 gold medallist Paul Goodison took Team GB’s single Laser spot but, in the build up to Rio 2016, Thompson has been in fine form and won bronze at the 2014 ISAF Sailing World Championships and gold at the 2015 Laser Worlds in June.
