Derek Redmond’s Greatest Olympic Moment

11th August 2012

Derek Redmond, one of Britain's greatest ever 400m Olympic athletes, has been voted into third place by the American public in an NBC poll of the greatest Olympic Moments of all time.

The scene that no one who saw it will ever forget was the heart-breaking moment during the Barcelona Olympics when his hamstring snapped in the semi-finals. Derek, a medal favorite, 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.
