25 years on, 110 million views later: we celebrate an unforgettable Olympic moment!

On Thursday 3 August, it will be 25 years since Derek Redmond fell to his knees during the 400m after tearing his hamstring. Applauded and encouraged by the 65,000 people in the stadium, Derek hobbled to the finish line. Not without the help of his father Jim who defied security and bolted onto the track to aid his son across the line.

To this day the moment is remembered by people everywhere. Derek is thrilled to be taking part in numerous 25-year anniversary events, the first being a Facebook Live event in association with the International Olympic Committee (IOC). The IOC shared the video from Barcelona in 2016 during the Rio Olympics and it has since gained 110 million views!

Derek and his father will take part in a Facebook Live chat where they will be answering questions about the Olympic moment which changed Derek’s life, and career forever. The official time of the live chat is yet to be announced but Derek will be posting the time on his Twitter @Derek_Redmond, so keep an eye out.

Also, in honour of the 25th anniversary, Derek’s management agency Champions Celebrity Talent Management are putting on a charity ball at The Dorchester Hotel on Friday 3 November. The event will feature Derek and his father on stage, remembering the race of 1992, it will also be compéred by Perrier award-winning comedian Dominic Holland and will include entertainment from 60s tribute band The Overtures.

Set to be a glamorous affair, table tickets for the event are available to purchase. For more information and to purchase yours, contact Lauren Ecob at Champions (UK) plc on 01509 85 29 27 or email
