DONCASTER born Anna Tunnicliffe showed Great Britain just what they are missing at the Skandia Sail for Gold Regatta - and has vowed to repeat the trick at the London Olympics next year.
The 28-year-old now lives in Florida but returned to England’s shores in style, claiming a match racing gold for America.
The former McAuley Catholic High School student beat Skandia Team GBR’s Lucy Macgregor 3-0 in the final.
But, despite claiming the scalp of the home favourites, Tunnicliffe is adamant she is far from finished on the London 2012 waters.
“We are delighted to have come away with the gold and it is all the more important doing it at the venue for the Olympic Games,” said Anna (pictured topping the podium).
