Sir Steven Redgrave has won gold medals at five consecutive Olympic Games from 1984 to 2000. He has also earned three Commonwealth Games gold medals and nine World Rowing Championship golds. Steve has achieved many other honors in the sport over the years, including the Henley Royal Regatta Diamond Sculls several times and the Silver Goblets a record seven times. In 1986 Steve became a Triple Commonwealth Gold Medallist at Edinburgh, winning the Single Scull, Coxless Pairs and Coxed Four.
