Redgrave Goes for 5th

HENLEY-ON-THAMES, England () -- British rower Steve Redgrave, reversing his decision to retire, said Thursday he will attempt to win a fifth successive Olympic gold medal at the 2000 Sydney Games.


After his triumph in this year's Olympics in Atlanta, Redgrave declared he was retiring.


"I've had enough,'' he said then. "If anybody sees me go anywhere near a boat they have my permission to shoot me. I don't ever want anybody to see me in a boat again.''
