Fantastic seeing him make it through his semi-final.
The interview after his heat was not KASS, but refreshingly honest, turning the pap, rote interview against the reviewer.
'What do you think went wrong?'
'Doesn't take a blind man to see that. [Looking back down the course]. The winning boat was there, my boat was way back there, damn hard to win a race with a boat in front of you like that.'
'And do you think you'll take something from this race 'going forward.''
[Fouhy looking at interviewer as if he just arrived from Planet Prime Time.] 'Probably not. No.'
I hope he gets a medal, he surely showed grit tonight, and overcame the personal demons.
