The Giles Scott Interview Part 3

Giles Scott in the Finn

Giles Scott was struggling to stay down to weight for the Laser. Standing 6’6 tall, Scott was keeping down to 83kg, only with a lot of dieting. His body fat percentage was down to 6.5%, although he didn’t find it as difficult as it sounded. “Weirdly enough in the last year it was actually relatively easy because I was at uni. I was a lazy student and I didn’t have to go shopping all that often for food. I don’t know, it’s weird, I think you almost get used to living and feeling that way once you’ve done it for so long, and then it actually was a bit difficult when I suddenly got told that ‘right, you’ve got to eat, you’ve got to put on 15 kilos for the Finn.’”
