What is it about the number 37? In 1992 in Argentina Ben Ainslie recorded his best ever finish at the Optimist Worlds of 37th and in Perth in 2011 Josh Junior recorded his best result at the Laser Worlds… finishing 37th. It must be a Finn thing. So Junior will travel to Enoshima this summer for his second Olympic appearance – he finished 7th in Rio – as the reigning holder of both the Finn Gold Cup and the America’s Cup won with Emirates Team New Zealand. It’s a decent start
 Why they won
‘This kiwi selection fight for Tokyo between Josh, Andy Moloney and Jake Lilley has been something else!’ – Scott Dickson; ‘We always knew Josh’s turn in the sun was coming’ – Heidi Marstrøm; ‘Go go Josh!’ – Gemma Jones; ‘The boy just gets better every time he goes afloat’ – Pat Healey; ‘Good luck from here mate’ – Murray Jones; ‘That was one hell of a hard one to win’ – Robert Deaves; ‘We’re all proud of you, mate’ – Harry Dodson.
