Cornwall at the Olympics: Thursday
6:53pm 2nd August 2012
Restronguet sailor Ben Ainslie's quest for a fourth Olympic gold is back on track.
He is second overall and just three points off the lead after Thursday's races.
Wadebridge rower Annie Vernon has missed out on a medal though.
She came fifth in the final of the women's eight.
Mum Morwenna was watching at Eton Dorney and said the support from Cornwall has been amazing: "Emails and the letters and in fact last night, her cousin and his wife sent nine helium balloons to the hotel for the nine girls all saying good luck and she said it's things like that which is great.
"We've got a great Cornish contingent here and we've had a lovely day.
"Obviously a medal would've been great but it would've been quite a huge achievement to manage a medal. They've performed very well and I'm enormously proud."
