Biographie

Christopher TIMMS

Chris Timms sailed for New Zealand at both the 1984 and 1988 Olympics, winning two medals, including a gold in 1984. His sporting career began as a mountain climber, but in 1966 he was badly injured in a fall off the Tasman Glacier. He then took up competitive sailing after spending several months in traction. Timms was a resin chemist and was a co-founder of Adhesive Technologies, which worked in resin manufacturing and engineering for marine usage. Many of their products were used in America’s Cup competition. Timms tragically was killed when he was flying in a two-seater plane that crashed in the Firth of Thames off the North Island of New Zealand.
