Biography

Simon Hiscocks sailed a variety of boats before being recruited by Ian Barker to join him a tilt for selection for the 2000 Sydney Olympics. Together they won a place on the Olympic team only by the narrowest of margins. After a slow start to their campaign on Rushcutters Bay they put together a consistently good run of performances in the second half of the event to claim a silver medal. Following Sydney the pair went their separate ways and Hiscocks teamed up with Chris Draper.

The duo won the silver medal at the 2002 World Championship and then went one position better to claim the gold in 2003. The Athens Olympics turned into a three way duel between Spain, Ukraine and Great Britain for the gold with the British boat just edged into third place, Hiscocks added a second world title in 2006 but missed out on selection for the Beijing Games. He then began to compete in bigger boats and is a member of the crew of the prospective Spanish America’s Cup team.
