Your host for the evening is Sky Sports presenter Pete Graves
For the first time Steve will talk you through his remarkable career, the highs and lows of arguably the greatest Olympian athlete to have ever competed.
Steve is s 5 Times Olympic gold Medalist in five successive Games – Los Angeles, Seoul, Barcelona, Atlanta and Sydney, an achievement that in the words of the former IOC President Juan Antonio Samaranch, "Raises Sir Steve Redgrave to the highest rank of Olympic participants."
NINE World Championships gold medalist
TRIPLE Commonwealth Gold Medallist
BBC Sports Personality of the Year 2000
Laureus Lifetime Achievement Award 2000
BBC’s Lifetime Achievement Award
Awarded 13 Honorary Doctorates from universities in the UK including Durham, Loughborough, Hull, St Andrew’s, Aberdeen and the University of London.
What makes his achievements more remarkable is that he won 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, three years before winning his gold in Sydney.
He was knighted in the New Year's Honours List 2000, to accompany his MBE in 1987 and his CBE in 1997.
In 2001 Sir Steve set-up his charity – The Steve Redgrave Trust, aimed at raising £5 million over five years for children’s charities. In April 2006 at the London Marathon, he broke the record for the most money raised by an individual, a staggering £1.8million and in doing so broke the £5 million target he set himself.
