A VILLAGE firm has made its mark on the world stage after supplying 100 boats for athletes competing at the Olympics.

LaserPerformance, which is based in Long Buckby, handcrafted every single piece of equipment used in the laser and laser radial sailing events in Weymouth during the games.

The full cost of the project was £500,000, but the firm rented all the equipment to Olympic organisers LOCOG free of charge.
