For the Sydney Olympics, Matthew and Steve joined up with James Cracknell and Tim Foster, to win yet another gold medal, in a race which has become known as one of Britain’s greatest sporting moments, and made the team members household names.

His record-breaking coxless pairs partnership with James Cracknell was undefeated.
