Jim and Julia Brady met as they were preparing to compete in separate sailing events in the 1992 Barcelona games.
He would go on to take what he considered a disappointing silver. She would win a thrilling bronze.
Both would be named Rolex Sailor of the Year. Jim would win a number of world championships in various classes.
Jim and Julia Brady settled in Greater Portland...twice.
Their story of love and life is almost unique among non-skating American athletes.
