Dylan Fletcher is heading to Tokyo for his second Olympics as part of Team GB.

His mum and dad were ballet dancers who got him into child acting. They saved the money he got paid for appearing in programmes like The Bill. And with that money he got his first boat aged 11.

Dylan finished 6th in Rio but goes in as one of the favourites with partner Stuart Bithell in the 49er class.

I've got an interview with Stuart later in the series.

It's great to hear Dylan's passion for both his sport and the sailing lifestyle.

Thanks for listening! See you on the next one.
