John Cutler claims Men’s Single-handed Dinghy Bronze, Seoul 1988

In 1988, the Olympic sailing was held at Pusan. John Cutler, competing in the class in which Russell Coutts had won the gold four years earlier, did not start promisingly, beginning with placings of 9th and 10th, from a field of 33 competitors. However, he finished with the impressive sequence of 4-4-8-1-1, not enough to catch the high-flying Spaniard Jose Luis Doreste Blanco or Peter Holmberg of the Virgin Islands, but enough to secure the bronze from Briton Stuart Childerley and Dane Lasse Hjortnaes.
