Olympic sailing: Brit Ainslie takes fourth successive goldLondon: British sailor Ben Ainslie continued his remarkable run of winning gold at every Olympics since 2000 with victory in the Finn class here Sunday.

Ainslie finished ninth, one place ahead of his Danish rival Jonas Hogh-Christiansen, in the medal race to take gold.

The two had battled throughout the 11 races off the coast of Weymouth and Ainslie roared and punched the air in his boat at the finish as Hogh-Christiansen curled up in his.

France`s Jonathan Lobert won the medal race and took bronze, edging out Jan-Pieter Postma of the Netherlands.

Ainslie, 35, won gold in the Finn in Beijing in 2008 and Athens in 2004, as well as in the Laser class in Sydney in 2000 and silver in the Laser in Atlanta in 1996.
