BIRMINGHAM, England -- Great Britain sailor Hannah Mills is hoping Wales remarkable run to the Euro 2016 last four is not the summers only sporting success story to have its roots in the principality.Wales is currently basking in the achievement of Chris Colemans side, with the 27,500 tickets sold for the Principality Stadium screening of Wednesdays semifinal against Portugal an indicator of how football has grabbed the attention of a traditionally rugby-obsessed country.It seems Cardiff native Mills -- who won a silver medal alongside Saskia Clark in the womens 470 at the London Olympics four years ago and is aiming to go one better in Rio next month -- is no exception.Its so inspirational, she told ESPN. Its such a cool story, what theyve done as a team, and I just feel really proud right now to be Welsh.Mills is quietly confident that her and Clark can add Olympic gold to their burgeoning collection of medals when they compete in what will be their final regatta as a pair.Clark is due to retire once their involvement at the Marina da Gloria is over, thus ending a five-year partnership that has yielded three World Cup gold medals and a world championship silver in the last 12 months alone.Were desperate to be on top of the podium but I dont think sailing is a sport that you can go to the Games and that be your only objective, she added. It is so tough, and the conditions can just not go your way on a day when they really need to.So, the goal is to just perform, as a team, as well as we can and we feel confident if we do that well be in with a really good shout.Given the success that Clark and Mills have enjoyed as a team it is not surprising that the latter feels uncertain about her post-Olympic future.Mills insists she will take her time before deciding whether to plough on towards Tokyo 2020 without her teammate, but says that gold in Rio would not necessarily convince her to call time on her own career in the water.I cant decide which way either [winning gold or not in Rio] would make me feel, she said. [If I] win a gold medal I might be more tempted to carry on just because there might be more opportunities sponsor-wise -- which makes it a lot easier.Mills added: Finishing with Sask will be quite tough, weve had an amazing journey together for five years and I dont know if Id want to do it with anyone else.It would be so bizarre. Also I feel quite excited about new challenges in life. I think Ill definitely spend a year exploring other things and finding out what I might do once I stop being an athlete. I think thats quite important.And who knows after that?
