With Opening Ceremonies tonight, we are highlighting one of our top 5 Olympic videos of all time each day this week. We hope they will be an inspiration to you and your family, too. Here’s our number 1 pick.
World-class sprinter Derek Redmond was set to run the race of his life and win a gold medal at the 1992 Olympic Games in Barcelona. But before he could cross the finish line, he pulled a hamstring and was forced to fall back. As he hobbled toward the finish line, his father emerged from the stands and helped his son cross the finish line. Watch as this pair demonstrates the love and friendship of a father and son, and the determination of a father who refuses to let his son finish alone.
