Helena Lucas Returns to Action After Paralympic Gold

Portland's Gold Medal Paralympian Helena Lucas sets sail today (Monday 22nd April) aiming to claim more medals and trophies.

It's the first time she's competed since her triumph on the waters of Weymouth and Portland at the Paralympics last summer.

The Gold medallist is racing in the Sailing World Cup that's held in France over the next 5 days.

Helena told us it's bizarre to think the games was only last year:

“So much has happened since then, it has been a whirlwind. I don’t think I’ve really had time to stop and absorb it all!”

“I think after all the hype off the back of winning my gold medal, I feel like I’m ready to get my feet back down on the ground and start going sailing and back to the slightly more ‘familiar’ parts of my life – focussing on sailing and training and all that goes with that!”
