The RYA UK Olympic Trials took place from the Weymouth and Portland Sailing Academy and Goodison, who is currently ranked number three in the world, won six out of the eleven races sailed to win the event by nineteen points from nearest rival Ed Wright.
Due to his performance, the RYA Olympic Selection Committee nominated Goodison to the BOA and where delighted that the nomination was selected.
Goodison commented, "I am overjoyed with my performance at this event and that I will be going to Athens this Summer. I have trained hard and come back from a disappointing result at the world championships last year and just feel relieved that the trials and selection process is over."
RYA Olympic Manager Stephen Park commented, "The regatta has gone really well and a number of sailors put up a good fight but there is no doubt that Paul dominated the event with six race wins out of eleven in a range of conditions. He showed himself worthy of winning the regatta and being selected to represent Great Britain at the Olympics in Athens."
Seventeen year old Nick Thompson has also been selected for the ISAF Youth Worlds this summer.
