At the 1992 Olympic Games in Barcelona, Derek Redmond tore his hamstring in the 400 metres semi-final. Waving off medical assistance, Derek felt obliged to finish the race hopping on 1-foot and, with assistance from his father, managed to complete a full lap of the track as the crowd gave him a standing ovation.
Father Jim Redmond was one of the Olympic torch bearers in London for the Summer Games. Redmond Senior died in October 2022, aged 81.
