There are two things I love about this video of Derek Redmond from the 1992 Summer Olympics:

  1. Despite being in what I imagine is quite a bit of pain, he gets back up and starts running again anyways.
  2. The way Redmond’s father pushes away the officials who are trying to usher him off the field. Sometimes doing the right thing means breaking the rules.
