Timeline of Derek Redmond


In 2015, Redmond joined psychometric assessment provider Thomas International as their Group Performance Director.


In August 2014, Redmond was one of two hundred public figures who were signatories to a letter to The Guardian opposing Scottish independence in the run-up to September’s referendum on that issue.


On 10 January 2012, it was announced that his father Jim would be one of the Olympic torch bearers in London for the Summer Games.


Redmond raced a motorcycle in the Hottrax Motorsport Racing Club with his team in conjunction with Maria Costello, as Costello Redmond Racing. The team finished second in the 2009 Senior 1000 Tag Endurance championship where three team members raced relay style over a six-hour period at seven national UK circuits.


Redmond was married to the British Olympic swimmer Sharron Davies in 1994 in Northampton. They divorced in 2000. The couple had two children, Elliott Anthony (born 1993, Northampton) and Grace Elizabeth (born 1998, Gloucestershire).

In 1994, Redmond won Celebrity Gladiators, and during the third series of Gladiators (1994), he served as “Official Timekeeper” to Referee John Anderson. Redmond has also served as a commentator for Eurosport, and presented a basketball show on ITV.


However, his career was blighted by a series of injuries. At the 1992 Olympic Games in Barcelona he tore his hamstring in the 400 metres semi-final but continued the race limping and, with assistance from his father, managed to complete a full lap of the track as the crowd gave him a standing ovation. Although Redmond was disqualified and listed as “Did Not Finish” due to the outside assistance finishing the race, the incident has become a well-remembered moment in Olympic history, having been the subject of one of the International Olympic Committee’s “Celebrate Humanity” videos and been used in advertisements by Visa as an illustration of the Olympic spirit and featured in Nike’s “Courage” commercials in 2008.

Redmond’s struggle in the 1992 semi-final later became the subject of one of the International Olympic Committee’s “Celebrate Humanity” videos, which proclaimed: “Strength is measured in pounds. Speed is measured in seconds. Courage? You can’t measure courage”. In 2008, Redmond was featured in the “Go World” series of Visa advertisements promoting the Olympic Games. The advertisement highlights his 1992 injury, noting that “he and his father finished dead last, but he and his father finished”, narrated by actor Morgan Freeman.

Redmond currently does motivational speaking on the conference circuit, inspiring people with the story of the 4×400 gold medal triumph and his famous ordeal in the 1992 Barcelona Olympics. He currently co-owns a Superbike team.


At the 1991 World Championships Redmond was a member of the British team that shocked the athletics world by beating the much-favoured American team into second place to claim the gold medal in the 4×400 metres relay. Redmond ran the second leg in the final and, together with teammates Roger Black, John Regis and Kriss Akabusi, ran what was then the second-fastest 4×400 metres relay in history.


Injuries consistently interrupted Redmond’s career. At the 1988 Olympics in Seoul, he pulled out of the opening round of the 400 metres 90 seconds before his heat because of an injury to his Achilles tendon. Before the 1992 Summer Olympics, he had undergone eight operations due to injuries.


In 1986, Redmond was a member of the team that won the 4×400 metres relay gold medal Championships. The following year, he was on the team that won the 4×400 metres relay silver medal at the World Championships.


Redmond first broke the British record for the 400 metres in 1985 with a run of 44.82 seconds. This record was subsequently broken by Roger Black, but Redmond reclaimed the record in 1987.


Derek Anthony Redmond (born 3 September 1965) is a retired British athlete. During his career, he held the British record for the 400 metres sprint, and won gold medals in the 4×400 metres relay at the World Championships and European Championships.
