Often considered to be Britain’s greatest ever Olympian, Sir Steve Redgrave was the first athlete to win gold medals at five successive Olympic Games in an endurance sport.

His streak began at Los Angeles 1984 as a member of the Coxed Four crew, and this was followed by Coxless Pair gold in 1988, 1992 and 1996.

At the age of 38, Redgrave competed in the Sydney 2000 Games and earned an incredible fifth gold medal, this time as a member of the British Coxless Four team.
