Three amazing days in the life of triple Olympic Gold medalist Ben Ainslie, as he takes his 10th World Championship title and is the first official torch bearer for the UK Olympic Torch Relay.

Ben Ainslie has a lot of expectation sitting on him this summer. If he wins a fourth gold in Weymouth he could make history and become the World's most successful Olympic sailor since sailing was introduced at the 1900 Games in Paris. Every boat Ben has ever owned has been called Rita, and his current Rita is very special. Having sailed her since 2003 she has won two gold medals -- no easy task for an old girl!Alt_ben_ainslie_played_with_the_c_3Showman: Ben Ainslie played with the crowd - London 2012 Olympic Games - AP Associated PressAlt_ban_and_mark1_2Ben Ainslie (GBR3) and Mark Andrews (GBR88) - Finn Gold Cup 2012 - Mark Lloyd ©Alt_ben_podium1_2Silver: Ed Wright (GBR11) Gold : Ben Ainslie (GBR3) Bronze: Jonas Hoegh - Christensen - Finn Gold Cup 2012 - Mark Lloyd © 

Ainslie took the silver medal during the 1996 Olympic Games and gold in the 2000 Olympics in the Laser Class. He went on to gain some 18 kilograms (40 lb; 2 st 12 lb) and move to the larger Finn class for the 2004 Summer Olympics where he took the gold medal, a feat he repeated in the 20008 competition.
