British Channel 4’s winter sports reality show is called “The Jump”, and believe it or not, one of the contestants is Sir Steven Redgrave who, although he says that he is ‘ten years too old’ to do ski jumping, decided to go for it. Yes, his wife called him Crazy!
But, as the newspaper The Independent wrote in an article: ‘Sir Steve, you see, is a bit of a skiing nut. Actually, scratch that: he’s a lot of a skiing nut.’ Read the article here. Training for another discipline, Sir Steve took a nasty fall, but luckily he did not break anything.
