A Golden Age - Nick Townsend, Steve Redgrave

Paperback - Very Good Condition


On 23 September 2000, at the age of 38, and watched by nearly seven million British TV viewers, Steve Redgrave entered the record books as the only person ever to have won five consecutive Olympic gold medals.

His success ensured his status as Britain’s most successful athlete of all time and saw the triumphant conclusion of a 24-year-long career during which he fought against the odds to achieve worldwide admiration.

This fascinating autobiography tells the story of Steve’s sporting career. from his first contact with rowing as a 13-year-old schoolboy, through his battle against diabetes and colitis. He discusses his partnership with Matthew Pinsent and describes the extreme pressures and emotional conflicts that can cement or destroy a team. Steve speaks too of his struggle to preserve a balanced family life in the face of an extraordinarily intensive training programme and reveals both the mental and physical pain that go hand in hand with being a world champion.
