Rayner Essex SportsAid lunch with Derek Redmond
The Rayner Essex SportsAid Lunch returns again on Friday 15th November 2019 and we are very excited to announce that our guest speaker will be British athlete, Derek Redmond.
One of Britain’s most famous athletes, Derek Redmond is a World and European relay champion. Having broken the British 400m record on two occasions, Derek was one of the country’s best athletes during the 1980s and 1990s. A key member of the relay squad that won gold at the 1991 World Championships in Tokyo, he competed at the highest level for over a decade.
He first rose to prominence in 1985 when he broke the 400m British record achieving a time of 44.82 seconds, 12 months later he was selected in the 4 x 400m relay team for the European Championships in Stuttgart.
Great Britain won gold in what was a sure sign of things to come. A year later they won a silver medal at the World Championships in Rome. By the time the 1991 World Championships in Tokyo arrived Derek had established himself as one of Britain’s best athletes. Alongside Kriss Akabusi, John Regis and Roger Black he then stunned the sporting world as Britain triumphed over the favourites USA to win gold. Their run remains the second fastest 4x400m run in history.
This is a great opportunity for you to network, enjoy a relaxed lunch and listen to an inspirational speaker, whilst raising valuable funds for SportsAid to help the next generation of young athletes who are giving everything to represent their country in the future.
