Norwich windsurfer Nick Dempsey’s silver medal win celebrated in lights at Holiday Inn

Norwich windsurfer Nick Dempsey's silver medal-winning performance has been recognised in lights.

A giant 50 foot image of the city sailor was first projected onto the front of Holiday Inn Norwich City in Carrow Road last night and will be there again tonight and tomorrow.

The projection celebrates the achievements of the Mulbarton sailor who won silver in the RS-X competition at Weymouth - bettering the bronze won in Athens eight years ago.

Bill Heath, general manager at Holiday Norwich City, said: 'We're delighted to celebrate Nick's achievements at the Olympic Games. It is a way of recognising the hard work and dedication British athletes have put in to reach the London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games.'

The projection will be seen again tonight from 8.30pm.
