'I hated the world. Then I felt a hand on my shoulder.'

I'm not sure if you've all seen the new Visa commercial featuring Derek Redmond. The athlete who tore his hamstring during a 400 meter race, fell to the ground in pain, then got up and continued running, with the assistance of his father. In case you haven't, watch it above.

The transcript to the video follows: "Derek Redmond didn't finish in first place in the 1992 400 meter. He didn't finish in 2nd, or 3rd, or 4th. He, and his father, finished dead last. But he, and his father, finished."


I remember watching the race back then. It was awesome. Truly what the Olympics and sport is all about.

you are so right, cameron.
