Biography

www.morrison-Rhodes.org.uk

Stevie Morrison has known 49er partner Ben Rhodes for 20 years, having competed against each other at cadet level.

The duo arrived at Beijing 2008 with a complete set of medals from three of the four World Championships since Athens 2004 and as favourites to reach the podium.

Highly disappointed with his ninth-place finish in Beijing, James Bond fan Morrison was sweating on Olympic selection for London 2012 after Rhodes had to pull out of the 2011 World Championships in Perth with a rib injury.

John Pink and Rick Peacock were among the front runners for selection but Morrison and Rhodes were selected for a second Olympic appearance.
