Steve Redgrave impressed by Rio 2016 rowing venue

Winner of five Olympic gold medals in five consecutive editions of the Games, Sir Steve Redgrave is an Olympic rowing legend.

While he was in Rio, Redgrave took some time to both see and row at the future venue of the rowing competitions at the Rio 2016 Olympic Games, and was impressed with it.

“It’s a marvellous setting, it’s absolutely stunning. In our sport normally we compete outside the city – we never get to compete in the heart of a city, but here in Rio we have got that chance.”
