British-born radial sailor Anna Tunnicliffe will make her Olympic debut at the Qingdao sailing venue. The venue, however, is familiar to her since she recently won the Qingdao Regatta at the same location. Actually, Anna's won quite a few sailing competitions and has risen to the number three ranking in the world in her sport (she's held the number one ranking as recently as 2006). And she's got a good chance of bringing home gold for the US.
Anna is another Olympian with an impressive non-athletic background. She immigrated to the US at the age of 12 and went on to attend Old Dominion University in Virginia where she finished in 2005 with a 3.73 GPA as a double major in accounting and decision sciences and a minor in music performance.
She's also featured in a K-Swiss commercial with other top athletes from various sports. You can see the video here.
