Matt Belcher is Australia’s Roger Federer

  

Matt Belcher + Will Ryan won the 2017 Men’s 470 World Championships on 16 July, the day before Roger won Wimbledon.  http://www.australiansailing.org/belcher-ryan-take-historic-victory-at-470-world-championship/

If you consider Wimbledon titles as the equivalent of World Championships, Matt is only one title behind Roger.

Their respective accomplishments are:
Roger – 8 Wimbledon (World) titles; 1 Gold + 1 Silver Olympic medal.

Matt – 7 World 470 (Wimbledon) Championships; 1 Gold + 1 Silver Olympic medal.

Matt’s has had two crew throughout these campaigns, Malcolm Page and Will Ryan, whose contribution to Matt’s achievements should also be acknowledged.

Please share to help the unbelievable sailing talent we have in Australia to become household names.
