US Sailing names 2014 national teams

US Sailing named 43 Olympic- and Paralympic-class athletes to the 2014 US Sailing Team Sperry Top-Sider.

The national team is selected annually and is composed of the top sailors competing in the events selected for the Rio de Janeiro 2016 Olympic and Paralympic Games.

Olympic-class athletes qualified for the team at their 2013 class world championships and at ISAF Sailing World Cup Miami in early February. Paralympic-class athletes qualified during ISAF Sailing World Cup Miami.

US Sailing provides the members of the 2014 US Sailing Team Sperry Top-Sider with financial, logistical, coaching, technical, fitness, marketing and communications support.

"As we build toward the Games in 2016, we are pleased to announce the members of the 2014 team and are focused on supporting our athletes to the highest degree possible," US Olympic sailing managing director Josh Adams said in a statement. "This is a critical year of the Olympic Quadrennium, culminating in the Rio Olympic test event and the ISAF combined world championships in Santander, Spain."
