Derek discusses career with Brazilian website ahead of 2016 Rio Olympics

Derek was this week given the huge honour of being featured on ‘Brasil 2016’,  the official website Brazilian government portal about the Rio Olympics, where he discusses his legendary moment at the 1992 Games in Barcelona.

In a candid interview with sports journalist Ana Claudia Felizola, he said that “the Olympics would not beat me” as he completed his 400m heat alongside his father despite his hamstring injury, but admits he would trade the long-lasting brilliance of the inspiring moment for a place on the podium.
