The global speaker bureau
Derek Redmond is a former GB athletic legend, having enjoyed a long and successful athletics career during the 1980's and 1990's which saw him break the British 400m record twice and challenge American dominance of the event. He was a prominent member of the British 4 × 400m relay squad that took gold in the 1991 World Championships, the European Championships in 1986 and the Commonwealth Games of the same year.
"One of Britain's greatest ever 400m Olympic athletes"
Derek is perhaps best remembered for his performance in the 1992 Barcelona Olympics 400m semi-final which in 2012 was voted the 3rd greatest Olympic moment in history in a poll of viewers of the US broadcaster NBC. Tipped for a gold medal in the final, Derek tragically snapped his hamstring 250m into the semi-final race. However despite the agony, he picked himself back up and made it across the finish-line with the help of his devoted father who had broken through security to join him. Derek went on to play professional Basketball for the Birmingham Bullets as-well as rugby union for both Coventry RFC and Stowe RFC.
