REDGRAVE Steve (1963) and PINSENT Matthew (1971) Great Britain / Rowing
Redgrave is an international rowing legend, and one of the very best oars of the 1990s.He won five Olympic titles with three different partners and in three different categories. He won his first Olympic gold medal for the coxless fours in 1988, then with his fellow countryman Holmes the coxless twos in 1988 and then won another medal in partnership with Pinsent in 1992 in Barcelona.Between these Olympic feats Redgrave, again in partnership with Pinsent, won no fewer than four world titles out of a total of 8 titles won.It was quite natural that they should partner each other again at Atlanta for a fourth gold medal for Redgrave and a second for Pinsent.But destiny has it that this athlete who stands nearly 2 m tall had not finished with the games nor the glory.In Sydney, Redgrave and Pinsent took their places in the coxless fours and won once again. Having announced his retirement, which may only be temporary, at the end of the Sydney games, he has recently been elected as Vice-Chairman of the British Olympic Association (B.O.A).
