Dane vows to deny Ainslie entry in record books
Danish sailor Jonas Hogh-Christensen has said he will try to make sure Ben Ainslie does not overhaul his countryman Paul Elvstrom's standing as the greatest Olympic sailor in history. If Ainslie gains another gold medal, to add to his three golds and one silver, he will have collected five medals in total, thereby leapfrogging Elvstrom who took four golds between 1964 and 1968. But Hogh-Christensen who beat Ainslie in the first two Finn races of London 2012, has vowed to do his utmost to see the record stays in Denmark.
