Ben Ainslie and Rita – Badges.

News Categories:

Ben and RitaBen Ainslie could make history this summer and become the World’s most successful Olympic sailor since sailing was introduced at the 1900 Games in Paris.

To achieve this feat, Ben needs to win his fourth Olympic gold medal in London. Everyone at the British Finn Association (the class of boat Ben will be competing in) would like to get the British public behind Ben and help make history!

Every boat Ben has every owned has been called Rita, and his current Rita is very special, he has won his last 2 Olympic gold medals in her and there is every chance he will take her to the London Games also!

We would love it if you could get some of your pupils to wear the Ben and Rita Badges take a picture and we can then upload it on Ben Ainslie’s facebook page. If you wish to do so how many badges would you like?
