Chris Timms and Rex Sellers claim Mix Open Multihull Sailing Silver, Seoul 1988

When the next Olympics, in Pusan, rolled around four years later, Sellers and Timms combined again following there Gold medal in Los Angeles; though they didn’t see a lot of each other in the interim – Sellers was a fisherman in Nelson (he moved to Auckland in 1990), Timms a resin chemist in Auckland. In the extremely testing conditions at Pusan, the New Zealanders won a silver medal behind peerless Frenchmen Nicholas Henard and Jean-Yves le Deroff to confirm they were still right in the top world class.
