Sir Steve backs See Britain campaign

Sir Steve Redgrave

To coincide with ‘500 days to go’ the Foreign and Commonwealth Office have launched a short film with Sir Steve Redgrave ‘See Britain Through My Eyes’. 

Sir Steve talks about how he got started in rowing, how his love of competing developed, winning at the Olympics, endurance and his views on the upcoming games.  “As a 50 year old I think I’d probably be struggling a little bit but it’ll certainly be a very proud day, from those humble beginnings of going out on a boat to seeing the opening ceremony and the flame lit.  I’m going to be one proud British guy, there’s no doubt about that”.
