Mills only began preparing for the London Games 18 months ago after teaming up with Clark, when the latter's sailing partner retired from the sport.

The Welsh sailor has also had to deal with a phobia that would put many people off ever setting foot in a boat.

"I'm scared of the water and I hate the sea. I'd be all right if it was clear and I could see what was underneath. But it's the not knowing what's there that freaks me out," the Telegraph quoted Mills, as saying.

The Cardiff-born sailor, who played tennis as a child but had to give it up because of knee problems, began sailing aged eight after trying it on a family holiday in Cornwall.

Mills was named UK Young Sailor of the Year in 2002 and together with Clark won the 470 class at the World Championships in Barcelona earlier this year.
