I'm 6′ 4” and weighed around 104 kilos when I was competing. Now I'm 120 kilos, which for me, is terrible.

He could pass for 195cm in his prime at times Rampage, perhaps it was a morning rowing measurement..

Rob, could Pinsent and Foster also get added?

Pinsent at 6ft5½ and Foster 6ft3¼ makes sense. I posted a clip where Foster claimed to be 191cm and 85kg either on this page or Cracknell's

Rob, could Tim Foster get a page?

At the 8:30 mark he describes himself as the smallest of the bunch at 1.91m and 85kg

Rob, is 6ft4 and change peak a better deal for Steve?

The 195cm listing carries some weight, like maybe at 9-10am. Certainly would've hit 6ft5 out of bed. I'd rate him as a very strong 6ft4. Cracknell is looking much shorter in the above photos but is bending his knees, probably no less than 6ft3½. Pinsent looks 6ft5-6 range for sure (he claims both). The guy between Redgrave and Cracknell, Tim Foster doesn't appear to have a height listed anywhere but I'm gonna guess he's similar to James, over 6ft3 but not quite 6ft4
Editor Rob
I think I'd stick around 6ft 4, though of course there may be a greater chance of over it than under!
Arch Stanton said on 22/Nov/20
See him on the end here, doesn't look anywhere near 6'4 here! Click Here

6'4 peak and 6'3.5" now standing next to strong 6'5 guy Dan Snow.

Rob how tall is the woman(his wife I assume) beside him? 183cm/6ft?
Editor Rob
She looks at least 5ft 11 range there.

I'd say 6ft4 on the nose today is fair, not sure if he'd be less than that...
Aza said on 7/Sep/16
Actually think he is less than 6'4 these days. Did meet him a few years back and I didn't feel dwarfed by him. It was early morning so I would be about 184 cm and 186 cm with work shoe.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 3/Sep/16
That's 1.5cm which is a fraction. If we're gonna get uber-precise...

Peak: 194-195cm
Today: 193-194cm
Arch Stanton said on 2/Sep/16
He's 54, I doubt would have lost more than a fraction but possible with the wear and tear form hard rowing and training. If he measured 195 barefoot I think it might have been a morning boathouse measurement or something before rowing, out of bed I think he'd have cleared 6'5 though.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 31/Aug/16
Arch maybe 195cm peak and 193-194cm range today? Maybe not quite a full 6ft5 though except in the morning.
Arch Stanton said on 29/Aug/16
I can well believe the 195cm measurement sometime in the morning peak, but the 196cm 6'5 is too high. Strong 6'4 range is what he looks, though at times poor posture can look 6'4 tops.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 27/Aug/16
6ft5 peak, Rob?
jessman said on 27/Aug/16
@Arch Stanton
It just read 192cm.
Arch Stanton said on 25/Aug/16
@Jessman, exactly what I guessed him at, do we know if he got a 6'3 and .5 or 75 measurement or did it just read "192cm"?

Redgrave was shorter than Jeremy Clarkson in 2008, so this looks right. Clarkson was probably still 6'5" then. And he has since shrunk to match Redgrave.
jessman said on 24/Aug/16
Just came across a group photo from a celebrity golf event on google images. Redgrave is in the photo, between swimmer Mark Foster (6'6) and Peter Jones (6'7). Redgrave looks a decent 6'4. There are lots of other well known celebs in tbis group photo. Not sure how to upload on here but a google image search of Redgrave and Foster will get you there.

Watched one of Cracknell's extreme marathon programmes a year or two ago and he was measured at 192cm so high 6'3 as Arch Stanton has said. Redgrave always looked a bit taller than Cracknell so I teckon Rob has it correct at 194cm. Maybe a max peak of 195cm. He tends to slouch a lot so loses a bit in photographs but when he straightens he can come close to Pinsent. Pinsent is a strong 196cm for me, maybe reached 197cm on a good day?
Editor Rob
the 192 is believable, not quite a big 6ft 4 guy.
Arch Stanton said on 24/Aug/16
Rob, would you consider adding Pinsent and Cracknell? They are sort of our Olympic legends, and both are often sene on BBC commentating now. What would you guess for Cracknell? I'd give him 6'3.75 possibly. He can look 6'4 at times time but others more 6'3 range. A little under 6'4 might be accurate? He claims 6'4, but maybe that's a morning height...
Editor Rob
maybe...I think a weak 6ft 4 range for Cracknell is possible 6ft 3.5-3.75 zone.
Arch Stanton said on 24/Aug/16
You're right, in some photos Pinsent can certainly look 1.5 inches taller than 6'6 Click Here Perhaps he is Gotz Otto sort of height. I wonder though if Steve is approaching the age now where he's starting to lose height though, he can look 6'4 flat at times. Peak though this is the lowest he really could have been I think.
Editor Rob
steve might have lost a fraction by now. Pinsent has a reasonable sized head for his height, so he can appear a bit shorter I think proportionally.
Arch Stanton said on 24/Aug/16
@Rob, I dunno a lot of the pics I saw I wouldn't have put Pinsent at near 6'6 Click Here In photos like that I'd have thought nearer 196cm. Either way it's obvious that Pinsent is not under 6'5, I'm just not sure he's 6'6. 6'5.5 is possible perhaps. Redgrave himself could look 195 at times, 6;4 at others, 6'4.5 seems the best shout.

His wife looks 5ft11.5 range right here, minus the 0.5" footwear advantage. These two are the perfect height for each other in my opinion, since the average woman is about 5" shorter than the average man, give or take.
littlesue said on 23/Aug/16
His wife must be getting on for 6ft then!
Chaz said on 23/Aug/16
I think he is or was taller than this,I was watching him on Family Fortunes He was taller than Vernon Kay by a good bit and he's 15 year old Son is already 6'5''. he's wife is very tall to I think he is 6'5''
Arch Stanton said on 23/Aug/16
Rob what would you guess for Pinsent? I don't think he looks 6'6, more a 196cm I think. You could argue 6'5-6'5.25 range I think.
Editor Rob
I think he's over 6ft 5, probably in the nearly 6ft 6 zone.
Arch Stanton said on 23/Aug/16
Actually if him and Flintoff were leven there they might look very close!
Arch Stanton said on 23/Aug/16
With legit 6'4 Flintoff looks taller Click Here though has camera advantage there and we can't see footwear.
Arch Stanton said on 23/Aug/16
Cheers Rob, seems right. Doesn't look a full 6'5 but 6'4 and change, though at times loose posture can look barely 6'4. Cracknwell is more high 6'3 range though I think.
Editor Rob
I think he could look 6ft 4.5 range most of the time, sometimes a bit less, maybe even a bit more. I don't know if Pinsent is 6ft 6, he can look 1-1.5 inches taller at times compared to Redgrave though!
MDV said on 23/Aug/16
How tall is the woman in the pic? 5 ft 11in-6 ft ?
Editor Rob
could be somewhere close to that.
