Water sports such as rowing, swimming, sailing and diving are well represented at the Olympic Games and have made gold medallists of many. Other tournaments include the Commonwealth Games and the FINA World Championships.
Legendary Greg Louganis is the only male in Olympic history to win gold for diving in consecutive Olympic Games, a record which he broke in the 1984 and 1988 Olympics in Los Angeles and South Korea respectively. He has 4 Olympic gold medals in total, and 17 gold medals across all tournaments including the World Championships, Summer Universiade and Pan American Games. He is said to be the greatest American diver of all time. A household name for many, double World Champion Tom Daley represented Great Britain in the 2008 Olympic games at just 14, and won the 2009 FINA World Championship at the tender age of 15. He specializes in the 10-metre platform event and won two gold medals for England in the 2010 Commonwealth Games, and two bronze medals at the 2012 Olympic Games in London and the 2016 Games in Rio de Janeiro.
Rowing has been part of the Olympic Games for over 100 years and has many different categories for both men and women, and retired rower Sir Steve Redgrave won gold medals at five consecutive Games for the sport in 1984-2000. Regarded as one of Britain’s greatest ever Olympians, he is the fourth-most decorated Olympian, with 6 medals in total, and he has won 9 gold medals at the World Championships and 3 at the Commonwealth Games. Three of Steve Redgrave’s Olympic gold medals were with Sir Matthew Pisent, who has won gold at four consecutive Games (1992-2004) and gold at 10 World Championships.
One of the most successful sailors in Olympic history, Sir Ben Ainslie was the first person to carry the Olympic torch in the UK in 2012, after making a name for himself by winning medals at five consecutive Olympic games between 1996-2012, including gold in the last four. He is one of only three athletes to win medals in five different Olympic games in sailing.
Retired Olympic swimmer Rebecca Adlington was Britain’s first Olympic swimming champion since 1988, and the first woman to win swimming gold for Great Britain since 1960, breaking the record previously set by Anita Lonsbrough, when she represented the country in the 2008 Summer Olympics. She won two gold medals in these Games, in the 400-metre and 800-metre freestyle and finished the latter in record time, beating the world record previously held by Janet Evans. Five-time World Champion Adam Peaty is also a record breaker; he is the current holder of the world record for 50m and 100m breaststroke. Along with Rebecca Adlington and David Wilkie, he is one of only three British swimmers to have won gold medals at all four major international events (Olympics, Commonwealth Games, European and World Championships), the first of which saw him crowned Olympic Champion (2016, Rio de Janeiro).
