STEVE REDGRAVE, Britain's triple Olympic champion, yesterday secured a sponsorship deal worth pounds 40,000 over four years with the Port of London Authority. In January Redgrave said that he needed backing to the tune of pounds 25,000 to support his family otherwise he would not be able to continue full-time training or compete in the 1996 Games in Atlanta. Redgrave has already received a pounds 2,000 increase in his Sports Aid Foundation grant.
