1996 Olympic eight – Ben is in the six seat

Ben commenced rowing at Melbourne Grammar School where he rowed in their first crew in 1988. He then had a dramatic rise to become a key seat rower in the 1992 Olympic eight. In his first year of senior rowing in 1992, he teamed up with Peter Murphy to finish third in the pair races with the first two placings going to the members of the Oarsome Foursome. He won the pair in 1993. He was one of the strongest oarsmen Victoria ever produced.
