A hug for a hero: Olympic gold medalist Dylan Fletcher returned to Market Harborough for the first time since his heroics in Tokyo in August to visit his grandmother Hannah Scott at Pegasus Court.

Harbourough superstar sailor Dylan Fletcher returned home today (Monday) for the first time since winning an Olympic gold medal in Tokyo. His grandmother’s house was his inviting place to go.

It was the first time he got to show his grandmother Hannah Scott his medal when he visited her during a morning tea break for residents at Pegasus Court.

Returning to Market Harborough for the first time since his heroics in Tokyo in August, Olympic gold medalist Dylan Fletcher visited his grandmother, Hannah Scott, at Pegasus Court. His new bride, Charlotte Dobson, also a brilliant Olympic sailor, accompanied him on the visit.

His mother and father, Jane and Graham, also came along.

Dylan said, “My Nan was very proud and a little overwhelmed too.

“I saw her at the airport when I flew in after the Olympics, but I haven’t had a chance to really speak to her until today.

“It was nice to see how much it meant not only to her but also to her friends.

His new bride, Charlotte Dobson, also a brilliant Olympic sailor, joined him on the visit. Dylan’s mother and father Jane and Graham (pictured) from Desborough also came along.

“One of the residents’ granddaughters was there and had watched the Olympic Games.

“She’s at Market Harborough CofE so it’s nice to inspire the younger generation.”

“My family and my Nan have sacrificed a lot for me over the years and I haven’t seen as much of them as I would like, so it was nice to see a smile on their face.”

Dylan said his immediate plans now are to spend some time with Charlotte at her Portland home, home of the GB Sailing team’s Olympic base, “planning her next big sailing adventure.”
