Ben Ainslie says he's not done yet, despite winning gold at the London 2012 test event
Three-time Olympic champion Ben Ainslie fired a warning shot to his London 2012 rivals, insisting he is far from done despite storming to gold at the Weymouth and Portland International Regatta.
The 34-year-old dominated from start to finish at the London 2012 test event, heading into Saturday’s Finn medal race just needing to finish to secure the title with his lead over nearest rival Pieter Jan Postma from Holland an unassailable 19 points.
But that didn’t stop Ainslie from laying down one last marker as he claimed victory to win by 31 points, having won five of the last six races on Olympic waters.
“I am happy with the way things have gone but it is in 12 month’s time that counts as that is where you want to be winning so I’ve got to keep thinking about ways to improve and keep pushing,” he said.
