NI sailing duo aim for 49er success

Bangor man Matt McGovern and Ryan Seaton from Carrickfergus will compete for Ireland in the 49er sailing class at the Olympic Games.

The Northern Irish duo clinched the Olympic place by earning a top-14 spot in last year's World Championships in Perth, Australia.

The pair are not among the medal favourites in the event, but Seaton believes that they can challenge for a place in the top three.
