From BBC Sports -
Four golds and a silver - pretty cool. Too bad we don't know more about him. Maybe now we will.The first of Ainslie's five Olympic medals - the most of any sailor - was a silver in the Laser class at Atlanta 1996, claimed when he was just 19.
He then won golds at Sydney 2000, Athens 2004 and Beijing 2008, all in the Finn discipline, before adding a fourth in Weymouth to overhaul Dane Paul Elvstrom's record of four golds in consecutive Games.
Ainslie has said he is unlikely to compete at the 2016 Olympics in Rio.
