"I asked Steve Redgrave to an England coaching session. I think I learned more from him than anyone, and so did the players. What came over loud and clear is that he is such a determined individual. Steve shook a few England players telling them just what you have to do to win gold medals and how hard it is. I think by the time the team started winning there were quite a few of them who thought they could become gold medallists too. They became completely obsessed about winning."
