Five-time Olympic gold medalist

The 23rd September 2000 was guaranteed a special place in the history of the Olympic Games, when Britain's Sir Steven Redgrave (38) won his fifth medal in five successive Games - Los Angeles, Seoul, Barcelona, Atlanta and Sydney.

His other sporting interests include golf and winter sports, and during the 1989/90 season, he was a member of the British Bobsleigh Team. Together with partner Matthew Pinsent, Sir Steven is the holder of the WORLD RECORD in Coxless Pairs set in Lucerne in 1994 and the OLYMPIC RECORD, set in Atlanta in 1996.

But perhaps even more impressive than Redgrave's extraordinary athletic performances themselves, is the fact that they were achieved against a background of serious illnesses. He nearly missed the Atlanta Games due to Colitis, for which he still receives treatment, and in 1997 he was diagnosed as diabetic.

Sir Steven Redgrave was awarded the MBE and the CBE. The University of Durham also awarded him an Honorary Degree in December 1996.

Off the water, he has a busy career representing commercial companies in a PR and promotional capacity at corporate events.
