Matthew Pinsent, Sir CBE
Matthew Pinsent CBE entered Olympic history in August 2004 at the Athens Olympic Games when he led the Great Britain coxless four to victory over the Canadian World Champions by only eight one hundredths of a second.
In doing so Matthew became one of only 5 athletes in the world to win 4 consecutive gold medals in four consecutive Olympic Games. In recognition of this incredible feat he was knighted in 2005.
In 1992, Matthew had his first taste of Olympic success, when in a Coxless Pair with partner Sir Steve Redgrave, he won his first gold medal at the Barcelona Olympics.
Once again in Atlanta in 1996 the Pinsent/Redgrave duo claimed gold and in 2000 in Sydney they triumphed once more and Matthew won his third Olympic gold medal.
Drawing upon his sporting experiences Matthew entertains audiences with his presentations in which he shows the importance of teamwork, motivation and success.
His determination and skill have made it possible for him to reach his ultimate goal and his personal achievements make him one of Britain´s greatest ever endurance Olympians.
