Team GB sailing pair Ben Saxton and Surbiton's Nicola Groves head into the Nacra 17 medal race refusing to rule out their slim chance of finishing their first Olympics on the podium later  today.

The Brits sit in eighth place overall going into the race, with 19 points separating them and Thomas Zajac and Tanja Frank (AUT), currently in bronze medal position.

But with that final race worth double points for every place, there is an outside chance they could land a medal if Saxton and Groves win, the Austrians are given a disqualification penalty and other results go their way.

Nevertheless Saxton admits the pair’s first Games have been a massive learning experience that has left him wanting more.

He said: “It has been great to be part of the team with the whole support network, I have had an awesome time.

"As for Tokyo 2020, I will try to be there with bells on.”
