A U.S. Sailing team member since 2011, Caleb Paine endured a tight battle to represent Team USA at the 2016 Rio Games in the Finn class. Paine’s come-from-behind performance at the 2016 Finn European Championships earned the San Diego native his first career Olympic berth. Paine secured a better overall finish (24th) than 2008 Beijing silver medalist, Zach Railey (30th), earning his U.S. Olympic selection. San Diegans will be rooting for Paine, who attended elementary schools in La Mesa as well as Point Loma High School. He grew up in Southwestern Yacht Club.
