Miles Arnone Comments on Paul Goodison's Olympic Sailing Goals Paul Goodison fights a painful back injury to keep his Olympic title. Miles Arnone, experienced world sailor comments that with his injury, the gold may be slipping away from Goodison. Charlotte, NC (I- Newswire) August 05, 2012 - After recently suffering a back injury the 34- year- old Olympic sailor, Paul Goodison says he needs to be "firing on all cylinders" before even considers winning another gold medal. A recent article from BBC discusses Goodison's chances of defending his title after his injury. Miles Arnone , an experienced sailor says that Goodison is right to focus on his own health before worrying about winning, but that could mean giving up the Olympic title. After initially hurting his back, Goodison was unable to bend over and was seen by reporters clutching his back the following day. Goodison said the pain has subsided after intense physiotherapy, but he is still 22 points away from the third place title. Goodison says he will receive more treatment before his next race and hopes that this is enough. Australian, Tom Slingsby currently holds the second place position but close behind him is Cyprus's Pavlos Kontides. Other competitors Goodison will need to look out for include sailors, Stevie Morrison and Ben Rhodes - both of which appear to be climbing forward after capsizing in Tuesday's race. "Our results were a lot better today, although I don't think we necessarily sailed any better than yesterday, but we didn't have that big mistake," commented Morrison. Currently, Woodison says he's not going to drop out of the race. He is grateful for the experience and hopes that with more rest and treatment he can be ready to set sail and compete at his best ability possible. After watching sailor's Morrison and Rhodes climb to fourth following their capsize mistake, he has hope he could fight back as well. Miles Arnone suggests that Woodison stay mentally tough and focused until the last race is over. "Sailing well didn't get him here - sailing tough and not giving up is what got him to this level," Arnone comments. Miles Arnone has sailed internationally and knows the effect an injury can have on a sailor's ability to perform. "Fighting the wind, water and other racers is enough of a battle without having to fight your own pain," Arnone states.
