  The Rower Who Won Gold Medals At 5 Olympics

  Steven Redgrave of Great Britain is the only rower to earn gold medals in five consecutive Olympics.

  Redgrave began his streak at the 1984 Los Angeles Games as a member of the British coxed fours crew.

  In Seoul in 1988, Redgrave teamed with Andrew Holmes and Patrick Sweeney to win the coxless pairs. Between Olympics, Redgrave found a new partner, Matthew Pinsent, and the pair won the coxless pairs at the 1992 Barcelona Games.

  In 1996, in their 100th race together, Redgrave and Pinsent successfully defended their title.

  At the age of 38, Redgrave returned to the Olympics in 2000 and earned a fifth gold medal, this time as a member of the British coxless fours team.

  Between 1986 and 1999, during every year in which a world championships was held, Redgrave won at least one medal, including nine golds.
