My most memorable Olympic Memory written for Total Politics: “Growing up, I followed every Olympics with the dream of being a track runner. My favourite moment was watching Derek Redmond complete the 400m semi-final during the 1992 Olympics in Barcelona. Despite snapping his hamstring, Redmond fought through the pain and with the help of his father crossed the line to a standing ovation from the crowd.” If you would like to read other Olympic memories from the article please click here .
