Ben Ainslie - 'Olympics has been my life for 20 years'

Ainslie says he will not bid for a fifth Olympic gold medal at the 2016 Rio Games and will instead focus on his America's Cup campaign, citing the physical pressures of sailing the Finn class boats and the desire to return the famous trophy 'back to British shores for the first time since 1851'.

The Cornish sailor says he is looking forward to the challenge of the larger and more complex craft used in the America's cup, likening the competition to Formula 1.
