Sir Steve Redgrave CBE is an English rower who captured five gold medals at five consecutive Olympic Games from 1984 to 2000. Redgrave is one of only four Olympians to have won a gold medal at five consecutive Olympic Games and this achievement led to him being hailed as Britain’s greatest Olympian. His record of 14 total Olympic and World Championship gold medals is unsurpassed by any other rower in history.
Since retirement in 2000, Redgrave has been involved in numerous commercial and charitable projects. In addition to maintaining a busy schedule as an after-dinner and motivational speaker, he is currently working with high profile brands such as Jaguar and the BBC and has written a number of books about his life and career.
