Gold Standard

22nov2018-goldSailor Patricia Guerra Cabrera, a gold medal winner at the 1992 Olympics, came to the British School of Gran Canaria on Wednesday 14th November 2018. She shared her experiences with the school's students in the ICT Room with a PowerPoint presentation. During her talk, Patricia passed around her gold medal and the life-sized replica of the Olympic torch.

Patricia was born in Las Palmas de Gran Canaria. When she was a teenager, she fell in love with sailing. Patricia started with the single-occupancy Optimist.

But by the time of the Olympics, she was competing in the 420, a boat sailed by a crew of two. Listening to Patricia, we really got a sense of the exciting atmosphere, that special Olympics feeling. After her gold medal, Patricia Guerra enjoyed a level of celebrity by appearing in the Spanish newspapers.
