Allan on her way to Rio Olympics

Cayman now has another athlete going off to the 2016 Rio de Janero Summer Olympics. 17 year old Florence Allan has been invited to compete in sailing.

The last time Cayman was represented in women’s sailing at the Olympic level was back in 2000 during the Sydney Olympic games by Tomeaka McTaggart.

When Allan and her coach Raphael Harvey first heard she was on her way to the Olymipcs they were left in a state of disbelief.

In a press release Harvey is quoted as saying, “When I heard the news yesterday I originally thought it was a hoax. I immediately called the Cayman Islands Olympic Committee for confirmation.” He added, “Saying that I’m proud would be a great understatement.”
