A Must-See Video: The Olympic Spirit of Derek Redmond

A Youtube video of Derek Redmond in the Barcelona Olympics in 1992 is something I’ve watched recently. And if you’re looking for some inspiration, you should see it, too. Just a brief background for those who don’t know his story: He missed his event in the 1988 Olympics due to an injury. This time, he was the man to watch and was determined to win the gold. But something happened – something that has made his performance one of the most memorable in Olympic history. For me, it’s more than just a story of a runner’s determination to finish his race. It’s also a story of a father’s love. It also tells me that winning your race is sometimes more than just getting the gold medal. I’m sure you’ll have many realizations from this one short clip. Please feel free to share them in the comments section.
