At Sydney 2000 Bontemps finished 24th in the Mistral, at Athens 2004 she improved her position coming 19th and at Beijing 2008 she narrowly missed out on the Medal Race by four points and finished in 12th place.
With a wealth of Olympic experience Bontemps passion remains as strong as ever, "I love the feeling to be on the startling line, with all the girls and ready to compete. I like the four years preparation, from building the project to being good at the right time."
Bontemps will be competing at the RS:X Europeans, RS:X Worlds, the fourth ISAF Sailing World Cup Regatta Semaine Olympique Francaise and the penultimate regatta Skandia Sail for Gold at the Olympic venue. Using these key regattas as preparation will be vital for Bontemps to ensure she hits her peak at the right time.
