Inspirational Olympic Leadership Story (This Video Will Move You to Tears)

Inspirational olympic leadership story

I saw the video clip below a little while back and found it to be extremely inspirational, touching and impactful. Try to watch this uplifting Olympic leadership story and not feel good and/or moved to tears.

With the 2012 Olympics in full swing and many uplifting stories of triumph, overcoming adversity and sacrificing so much surfacing every day, here is one from the past that you won’t ever forget. And if you have already seen it or heard about it, this story will uplift you up again – I promise.

Derek Redmond, a British athlete, teaches us on the largest of the world’s stages to not give up and to keep moving forward. His father also teaches a tender and loving lesson as well.

What does this have to do with leadership? Please watch and let’s discuss.

    This is an amazing video! I think it shows grace and glory. We always see the highlights of the winners and the Gold Medal Finishes. This was a Gold Medal Finish in my book! Picking yourself up and when you have fallen is more difficult then sprinting to the finish!
