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."

It goes without saying that the Olympic and Paralympic Games offer us all an opportunity to root some fresh Olympic memories on home soil.
