Germany's Elisabeth Panuschka campaigned with her helm Annina Wagner for the Rio 2016 Olympics. The partnership was up against strong opponents and missed out on Olympic selection.

In this TEDx talk Elisabeth, who is now studing at Kiel University, gives an insight into her sailing career, her attempt to qualify to Rio 2016 and the upside of missing out on Olympic selection.
