Biography

 

Ben Rhodes suffered a rib injury which ruled him out of the 2011 ISAF World Championships in Perth but he and Stevie Morrison, as they were at Beijing 2008, were selected in the 49er class.

‘Rodent’ and Morrison won gold at the 2007 World Championships and the Beijing test event and arrived as one of the favourites for gold, only to end up in ninth position.
