Colitis, Sir Steve Redgrave


Steve was diagnosed with ulcerative colitis before the Barcelona Olympics and has supported Crohn’s and Colitis UK since 1994.

"There were times when it seemed as if colitis would prevent me from reaching my goals but, with the right medical treatment, I was able to keep the illness under control and continue with my life, both in training during my career as an athlete and in my life beyond the boat.

"Many others aren't as fortunate, for them, just trying to lead a normal life is a real test of courage and determination. I know the impact of these diseases, it's vital to have good information, understanding and support."
