Daily Lift - 10 Years for Amanda Clark

Amanda Clark is competing for the United States in this summer’s Olympic Games as a skipper in the Women’s 470 Class for US Sailing Sperry Top-Sider.  Did you know that she was a member of the US Sailing Team for ten years before getting her first birth to the Olympics?  Clark first made the team in 1998, where she competed in the singlehanded Europe Dinghy class.  In 2001, she switched over to the 470, and qualified to represent the United States in 2008.  She returns to the Olympics again this year with new crew, Sarah Lihan, and is aiming to take a spot on the podium.
