Sir Steve Redgrave 5 time Olympic gold medalist in rowing

18 Mar 2023

World famous rower Sir Steve Redgrave had already won four Olympic gold medals by the time he was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes in 1997 at the age of 35.

At that time he was in training for the Sydney Olympic Games in 2000, so he adapted his training routine accordingly and, equipped with a stash of sugar, went on to win his fifth and final Olympic gold medal.
