British High Jumper
Derek Redmond As one of BritainÕs greatest ever 400m Olympic athletes, Derek is able to bring a unique perspective to what it takes to set goals, overcome obstacles and succeed. A career that brought gold medals at Olympic, World, European and Commonwealth levels and also saw more than its fair share of bad luck and heartache, most famously during the Barcelona Olympics when his hamstring snapped during the semi-finals. Derek, a medal favourite, struggled to his feet and hobbled the remaining 250 metres in a scene that has become one of the most enduring in modern Olympic history.
