In assembly today we shared a clip from the 1992 Olympics which should inspire us all never to give up. Natasha summed it up by saying that the most important thing in the world is to keep going and never to give up. We can all achieve our goals if we keep trying our very best. When we do try our best others around us will support us. This is the link below.

What Redmond said:

“Everything I had worked for was finished. I hated everybody. I hated the world. I hated hamstrings. I hated it all. I felt so bitter that I was injured again. I told myself I had to finish. I kept hopping round. Then, with 100 metres to go, I felt a hand on my shoulder. It was my old man.”

What Redmond’s father, Jim, said

“I’m the proudest father alive, I’m prouder of him than I would have been if he had won the gold medal. It took a lot of guts for him to do what he did.”
