The image of Matthew Pinsent’s emotional triumph at Athens in the summer of 2004 was shown again and again on television and in our newspapers.
Four Gold Olympic medals is an amazing achievement. That final race was won by only a hand-span; it was unbelievably close. But Matthew and his crew managed to inch ahead and triumph after years of gruelling training and a punishing routine.
Matthew Pinsent’s first taste of Olympic Gold came at the age of only 21, when together with his partner Steve Redgrave, they won the gold at the Barcelona Olympics in 1992. Prior to that Olympic win, Matthew and Steve had an unbeaten international season with wins at Cologne, Duisburg, Henley and Lucerne. With Sir Steve, Matthew holds the world record in the coxless pairs, set in Lucerne in 1994 and the Olympic Record.
In 1992, Matthew graduated in geography from St Catherine's College, Oxford, where he was President of the Oxford Rowing Team. He took part in the Oxford and Cambridge Boat Race in 1990 and 1991, where Oxford beat Cambridge by substantial distances. Matthew was awarded the MBE in the 1993 New Year’s Honours List.
