Sir Steve Redgrave has proved himself one of the greatest athletes Britain has ever produced. With the coxless four triumph at Sydney, he became the country’s greatest Olympian (a title he retained for over a decade), and the only athlete to have won gold in endurance events at five consecutive Games.

In addition to Olympic success, Steve amassed nine World Championship and three Commonwealth golds, in the single scull, coxless pairs and coxed four. He and Matthew Pinsent also set an Olympic record in Atlanta. Despite asking anyone seeing him near a boat again to shoot him after his fourth Olympic win, Steve returned in style to win another in Sydney before finally retiring. Since leaving the top flight Steve has become a frequent media contributor and was a regular presenter and pundit for the BBC during the London 2012 and Rio 2016 Games.

Steve talks about the pressure of staying at the top of your game. He describes the unforgiving training regime, the leader’s role and the mix of skills within each team, the need to adapt to ever changing circumstances and the importance of establishing a series of achievable goals.

Steve is Vice President of the British Olympic Association and was a member of the board that won the bid for London in 2012. After the public voted him Sports Personality of the Year, he then topped an all-time poll of winners - beating the likes of David Beckham and Ian Botham. He also carried the Olympic touch into the stadium at the opening of the 2012 Games, and has run the London Marathon raising a record £1.8million for charity.
