Olympic moment

From The Guardian: Derek Redmond (follow link to story)

"What made this moment at the 1992 Games special was it brought into focus not just one athlete's near-heroic desperation but a more universal theme: the nature of parenthood"

There a better quality versions of this race online, but most have edited out the sad trek around the back turn. This clip shows the whole race.
