The Olympic selection opportunity is hotting up and we spotted this news story about US athletes in training for 2016 selection.

and she can’t turn around to see without severe spasms.  She is the odds-on favourite for her category for Rio. Jacqui has been training using the Hyndsight Vision in-boat camera for her training because her disability impedes her rotational movement and turning round for steering is just too challenging.  Jacqui LOVED the Hyndsight system.

Blake Haxton is the same division, men’s category. He’s still young and has full ability to turn and see so he didn’t use Hyndsight, but liked the idea.

Everyone from camp got a chance to check out Hyndsight, although not everyone got to use one in the boat. It was all positive responses, and some really good feedback.
