Who Is Derek Redmond?
A former 400m sprinter in the 80s and 90s, Derek rose to fame on the athletics track, after twice breaking the British 400m record with a time of 44.82 seconds. Equally impressive in the 4x400 m relay team, he represented Britain on multiple occasions, including the Gold place 1991 World Championships.
The Moment That Made a Hero
Often hailed as one of the most inspirational moments in Olympic history, Derek gained hero status at the 1992 Summer Olympics. In the much anticipated semi-final of the 400m individual race, Derek made it just over half way before tearing his hamstring and keeling over in pain. Determined to complete the race, despite no chance of winning, Derek hobbled to the finish line with the help of his father.
A moment the world watched in awe, hear about it straight from the source at Derek’s speaking engagements.
