When I was in high school, my youth pastor, Mike Mobly loved sharing this story with us. We probably heard it 10+ times. Mike told it so well that I could almost picture the video in my mind.

The other day I came across a video that sort of recreated the moment and the circumstances surrounding this special story.

World-class sprinter Derek Redmond was set to run the race of his life and win a gold medal at the 1992 Olympic Games. But before he could cross the finish line, he pulled a hamstring and was forced to fall back. As he hopped on one foot, his father left the stands and helped his son cross the finish line. Watch as this pair demonstrates the love and friendship of a father and son.

  1. I’d rather “see” a sermon than hear one any day ! More is revealed in action than in words!
