Wikipedia profile: Ben Ainslie English sailor and Olympic medalist

Ben Ainslie 
Charles Benedict Ainslie, CBE, (born 5 February 1977 in Macclesfield) is 
an English sailor and five-times Olympic medalist. He started sailing at the 
age of eight and first competed at the age of ten.[1] Ben Ainslie's first international 
competition was the 1989 Optimist world championships held in Japan where he placed 
37th. As of the 5 August 2012, Ainslie became the greatest Olympic sailor of all time 
with more gold medals than any other sailor and is the 4th most decorated British athlete...

London 2012: Ben Ainslie, Cornwall's gold man of the sea
The Briton has made it four Olympic golds in a row
but says it is unlikely he will go to Rio for a fifth

guardian excerpt:
Ainslie now has five Olympic medals, four gold. Perhaps in the days to come 
the debate over Britain's Greatest Olympians will be cranked up once again 
but it is largely pointless to compare across events and Ainslie's achievement 
is immense in its own right. As is the way of these things, no doubt a knighthood 
will follow for this one-man windblown armada. For now, though, Ainslie will 
always have Weymouth and a moment of thrilling Olympic coronation for the greatest 
sailor of them all.
