This is the story about Derek Redmond an English athlete who participated in Barcelona Olympics 1992. As every ambitious athlete, he prepared his mind and body for the 400-meter sprint. Around 150-meter hamstring stuck him. With agonizing pain, he fell to the ground.

But he was not willing to give up today! Even though thousands and thousands were watching, he wanted to finish what he started. Many of them tried to stop him, but he said NO! Then his father came along and helped him to finish the race.

Even though the body failed, his mind and ambition did not fail. Never give up!

Lesson: Never give up!  When you don’t give up you can’t fail! He lost the race but he won millions of heart.
