If you ask P. Railey, she will tell you that she wants to win gold at the 2020 Olympics in Tokyo. However, that’s not her main objective.

What I care about most is doing well in my performances. P. Railey remarked, “I just want to go out there and do the stuff I’ve been practising for.” When I accomplish that, things will start to make sense.
The Clearwater native is 34 years old and believes she is emotionally and physically prepared to compete in her third Olympics as a member of the U.S. national sailing team.
She plans to race in Laser Radial, a highly taxing endurance event. Designed specifically for less hefty sailors, the Laser dinghy may be sailed with just one person on board.

Going To School Full Time And Training For The Olympics At The Same Time
Paige has been a member of the U.S. Sailing Team since 2005, and she has won several races and accolades throughout that time.
With becoming a household name after her 2006 victory at the Laser Radial World Championship, she was named Rolex World Sailor of the Year and Rolex Yachtswoman of the Year by the United States Sailing Association.
She spent the years after failing to make the Olympic team in 2008 for Beijing working and improving her skills in preparation for the next Olympics. She was a full-time student at the University of South Florida St. Petersburg campus at the time.
My impression of the St. Petersburg campus was favourable. Riley remarked, “It wasn’t simply a school on dry land; it was directly on the ocean.” The smaller class sizes allowed me to interact with my teachers more personally than I would have been able to in a lecture hall with 300 other students.
“P. Railey would spend as much as 12 hours a day in the gym and in the library, with the goal of finishing college in three or less years. She didn’t have much time for extracurricular activities, although she did get to go sailing with the University of San Francisco women’s sailing team.
She gives a lot of credit to Allison Jolly, the head coach of the USF Sailing team and a gold medalist at the 1988 Olympic Games in Korea, for helping her figure out how to balance her academic and athletic pursuits at USF.
P. Railey credited Allison with making it possible for him to pursue an Olympic bid while also continuing his education. After many years of study, in 2010, P. Railey earned a bachelor’s degree in Management from the University of South Florida in St. Petersburg.
Ways To Go To Tokyo
After finishing college, P. Railey prepared for her subsequent Olympic bid. She competed in the Laser Radial event at the London 2012 Olympics and finished in eighth place. She competed in the same event at the 2016 Olympics in Rio and placed 10th.
However, she experienced a setback not long after the Rio Olympics. She couldn’t continue sailing after being diagnosed with an autoimmune disorder. Even though it was one of the worst years of her life, she made it through.
I believe one’s success is proportional to his or her willingness to put in the necessary effort. In other words, if you put in the work, you can do anything. Don’t lose sight of your end goal, and you will succeed.
In 2018, P. Railey returned to competitive sailing, and she finished in second place in the Laser Senior European Championship. She qualified for the Tokyo 2020 Olympics just before the epidemic hit with to her strong showings at the 2019 and 2020 world championships.
Although it was a setback, P. Railey made the most of the extra time she was granted after the 2021 Summer Olympics were postponed because of the coronavirus outbreak. She made the most of her time at home to exercise and concentrate on her goals in whatever manner she could.

Now, what’s most important is not only winning, but doing her best. For me, personally, it would be incredible to win an Olympic medal. But I’ve had a career to be proud of for the rest of my life, and it’s been a good one.
Taking place in and around Tokyo, Japan, the 2020 Summer Olympics will run from July 23rd to August 8th. The city of Enoshima, to the south of Tokyo, will serve as the venue for the sailing competitions.
