|1964 Tokyo||5.5 metre|
James Frederick Richard "Dick" Sargeant (born 17 March 1936 in Kobe, Japan) is an Australian sailor and Olympic Champion. He competed at the 1964 Summer Olympics in Tokyo and won a gold medal in the 5.5 metre class.
Prior to Tokyo, Dick had been a crewman on Gretel, the Australian challenger for the 1962 America's Cup. After Tokyo, Dick continued his involvement with the Australian and international sailing world during the ensuing decades. He competed at Mexico City 1968 Olympics, where he and Carl Ryves sailed their Flying Dutchman class boat into fourth place, an agonising 0.7 points off a medal.
