Is Samantha Redgrave Steve Redgrave's Daughter?
Even though they have the same name, Samantha Redgrave is not Steve Redgrave's daughter.
Bring on the final, shouted SAMANTHA REDGRAVE as she got her European Championship campaign to the best possible start. The 27-year-old Gateshead rower advanced to Saturday's championship race by winning the women's four heat on Munich's opening day of the multisport competition with teammates Heidi Long, Rowan McKellar, and Rebecca Shorten.
At the Olympic Regatta Center in Munich, Redgrave's boat triumphed over Romania, Italy, France, and Spain in 7:11.95, by crossing the finish line.
The quartet managed some windy German conditions and thought they were peaking just in time for this weekend's competition. After her performance on the first day, Redgrave has a good chance of winning one of the 177 gold medals available.
