Redmond still carries a torch for the games

Redmond still carries a torch for the games

DEREK Redmond came face to face with his old sporting world today as the Olympic torch arrived at Brands Hatch.

The two-times Olympian joined reigning MCE Insurance British Superbike Championship champion Tommy Hill to welcome the torch as it was paraded around the famous circuit.

And it was a chance for Redmond’s old world to come together with his new one, as he once again found himself in the hub of the Olympic action some 20 years after his famous Barcelona moment.

“It’s great to see the Olympic spirit here at Brands Hatch today. I think it’s brilliant that the Olympic Games are stepping out and getting involved in different sports like the MCE Insurance British Superbike Championship.

“Having competed in two Olympic Games and been to several others over the years, to have my old sport here linking up with the one I’m heavily involved in now is fantastic.

“There was a good turn-out from the public here to see it arrive, and the support and cheers from everyone as it went by show just how excited the country is about the games. I’m very proud to have been involved.”
