Athlete Introduction

After winning the Youth World Championships in 2000, chronic back pain stopped Ben Austin from sailing. It took Austin, a trained physiotherapist, two years to overcome the injury and in 2005 he combined with Nathan Outteridge in the 49er class. The pair won the 2008 49er World Championships before making their Olympic debut in Beijing in 2008. Austin and Outteridge finished fifth.
