This incredible rower is the only Olympian to have won gold medals at five consecutive Olympic Games in an endurance sport from 1984 to 2000. This achievement has led to him being hailed as Britain’s greatest Olympian of all time.
Since retiring, Sir Redgrave has been heavily involved in charity work. The Steve Redgrave Fund has grown far beyond the £5million target that Steve set when launching the charity in 2001 and that total has continued to build since joining forces with Sport Relief.
Steve has recently spent his time devoted to developing commercial relationships and helped England win the bid to host the 2012 Olympics. Redgrave was one of the final torch-bearers for the Olympic Games of London, carrying the torch into the stadium.
