Redgrave parts 1-5 - in pictures
The Steve Redgrave Olympic story began in 1984, with a first gold medal as a 22-year-old member of the British Coxed Four.

After that Steve teamed up with Andy Holmes to win a gold in the Coxless Pairs four years later.

But it was with Matthew Pinsent that Steve became a legend as the duo won both Olympic Coxless Pairs titles during the 1990s.

This is Redgrave's pictorial story.
